Inspired by charming Alpine towns and villages, ‘The Alps’ promises to whizz diners across the snow-kissed mountain regions of France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Italy via a series of six dishes. Think snowy landscapes, rolling hills, cosy lodges, Mont Blanc, cheese fondue, cured meats, snow sports and après-ski.
The new six-course tasting menu includes: Raclette Fondue - crispy pig’s head, quince; Salmon on the Rhine (pictured top) - pumpkin, horseradish emulsion, apple and dill dressing; Tartiflette - barbecue broccoli, pickled walnut, reblochon cheese; Risotto du Crozets - hen of the woods mushroom, truffle, pesto bianco; Chicken & Pork Farcon - hispi cabbage, sauerkraut ketchup, meat sauce, and for dessert, Snowballs - coconut and pistachio parfait, passion fruit caramel and chargrilled pineapple.
There will also be the option for diners to add additional snacks, with choices such as Pane Di Pasqua, Sopressa Veneta & Salame Finocchiona, Taleggio & Emmental, Preserved Artichoke Bugnes, Root Vegetable Chips and Gordal Olives.
The Alps will be the first Six by Nico menu to be served at all of Nico Simeone’s restaurants at the same time. The Liverpool restaurant is his most recent launch after Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Belfast, opening in November 2019, with menu themes so far including ‘The Chippie’ and ‘New York’. The Six by Nico brand intends to grow in 2020, with an opening planned for London later this spring.
Chef Simeone said: “As we endure darker days during the winter months, ‘The Alps’ themed tasting menu will give guests the opportunity to enjoy a respite of rich and comforting dishes. With Alpine cuisine categorised by the different regions of the Alps, we wanted to create a menu of comfort and resilience, inspired by everything we know and love about the stunning Alps region, seeking comfort in its rich and wonderful cuisine.”
The menu will be priced at £29 per person with the option of an additional wine and specialist drinks pairing for £26. A vegetarian alternative is also available. Diners can book a table now for ‘The Alps’.
