It’s hard not to get excited when The Circus rolls into town – and that’s exactly what’s happening as Six by Nico returns later this month.
The arrival of the blue and red Big Top is quite an event with dazzling high-wire acts, clowns splattered with custard pies, jugglers, magicians and unicyclists.
Inspired by memories of the The Circus experience, Chef Nico Simeone and his team have created a show stopping menu seasoned with a little bit of mystery, a little bit of magic, and a whole lot of joy.
From the sweet smells to the festive music, the ambiance of the Circus is especially uplifting – bringing people and families together with adulterated fun and comforting food.
After a downer of a year, the team at Six by Nico knows how to turn a meal into a show. If your favorite memories consist of Ferris wheels and fried dough, The Circus menu will be right up your alley this Spring. From Monday 26 April in Scotland (Glasgow and Edinburgh) and from Monday May 17 in England (Manchester, Liverpool and London) at Six by Nico restaurants will showcase the flavours of upscale carnival food and surprise and delight guests looking for the greatest feast.

The final act ends on a sweet note with The Grand Finale – Peanut Butter parfait, Rhubarb Compote, Blood Orange, Candy Floss.

Chef Nico Simeone said: ‘Who amongst us doesn’t have fond memories of a visit to the circus when we were young? The circus is a fascinating visual and our re-opening menu is full with colorful unpretentious, playful dishes.
‘Everybody needs a little extra excitement right now and our team had lots of fun developing and creating this theme as we prepare to reopen our Six by Nico restaurants across the country.’
