The latest concept at Nico Simeone’s 111 by Nico promises a unique culinary experience for every diner.
At ‘Trust’, you choose the main ingredient for each of the 5 courses in the tasting menu, but how it’s cooked will remain a mystery until it arrives.
If you wish to hand over all control to the chef, the ‘Total Trust’ menu rewards your adventurousness with an extra course.
We start with an amuse bouche of ‘mushroom’ and ‘gazpacho’ – which arrive as a hearty mushroom and parmesan veloute, and a rich and soothing chilled ajo blanco.
Each dish that follows showcases the very best of the main ingredient. ‘Aged beef’ is served raw, with fermented peppers to cut across the rich complexity of the meltingly tender beef; ‘smoked salmon’ comes lightly poached and perfectly pink; ‘ox cheek’ has been braised slowly and lovingly to tender perfection and topped with crispy onions; and ‘cod’ arrives as a plump and juicy seared fillet atop a bed of risotto.
Every course displays a true understanding of the strengths of each ingredient, while incorporating the innovate flair that the Nico brand has become known for.
The 5 course tasting menu is outstanding value at £25 per head, and the matching wine pairing (£22) has been expertly curated to complement the flavours of each dish.
With a new set of ingredients to choose from every month, Trust guarantees that your dinner will never be the same twice.
