Six By Nico Leeds: Help them write their next chapter

Thursday 27th Jul 2023 |

New Leeds eatery, Six by Nico, has announced a twist on its upcoming tasting menu; it is letting its loyal customers decide what the six courses should be.

Located on East Parade, Six by Nico’s conceptual dining experience sees it rotate its tasting menu every six weeks. Now the restaurant has announced the theme of its second menu – Once Upon A Time.

Chef Nico Simeone said: “Our new Six by Nico restaurant has had such a wonderful welcome from the people of Yorkshire that we wanted to say thank you in our own way – by giving our loyal customers a chance to write a part of Six by Nico Leeds’ own story.

“We know that the people of Leeds and its surrounding areas will have their own favourite childhood tales – so we want to create a menu bespoke for Yorkshire that will celebrate these stories and create an enchanting experience for diners.

“We’re already seeing huge demand for our second menu, before the six courses have even been officially announced, so for any foodies wanting to experience our Once Upon A Time menu, we’d recommend booking quickly!”

Once Upon A Time follows on from Six by Nico’s iconic The Chippie menu, which saw over 5,000 bookings within the first few weeks of opening.

The six-course tasting menu is priced at £39 per person, with the option to enjoy an expertly selected wine pairing for an additional £30. Diners can also opt to add on themed snacks at £7.50 per person, and an aperitif for £8.50 per person, for the ultimate feasting experience.

Six by Nico caters to all dietary requirements, offering a full vegetarian menu for each new menu concept. Plus, customers can swap courses from the meat menu to the veggie alternative, if they wish. Other dietaries and certain allergens can also be catered to upon request, ensuring no-one misses out.
