Ten Course Tasting Menu at 111 by Nico

By Emma @glasgowfoodie

Chef Nico Simeone introduces a ten-course tasting menu at his west end restaurant, 111 by Nico

With Mr Foodie away working, I was flying solo at 111 by Nico to try his new 10 course tasting menu. The cosy and hubub filled restaurant welcomed me with an aperitif of An apple a day, a refreshing a surprisingly strong start to the evening.

So what's on the menu? Dishes on the ten-course menu included the Golden Egg - duck liver parfait with yellow peach compote and brioche as well as another favourite dish of mine, Mackerel served with cucumber, greengage, elderflower, dill and buttermilk.

6.Moscato Passito Piemonte DOC La Bella Estate, Vita Colte

Once again 111 by Nico has proved why it is a fave of ours. Excellent quality ingredients served in a manor both which enhances their flavours and also in combinations I didn't think of. The creaminess of the oyster emulsion coating the venison tartare was balanced by the saltiness of the Parmesan Polenta which followed. There's something interesting in each dish from the ewes curd alongside the salsa verde to cheese served with sweet gingerbread.

TL;DR

+ superbly executed dishes.

+ try the matching wines as well.

- can get warm quickly when the restaurant is full.
