I've seen some mentions of Nico, but it doesn't seem to have a dedicated thread, so I wanted to start one.

They recently changed their menu format to a 5-course pre-fixe with an option to reduce to 3 courses (of your choosing). They prefer to keep the menu a secret, but they'll let you see it if you prefer.

First course - scallops
Second course - celery root
Third course - trout
Fourth course - duck
Fifth course - citrus with goat cheese sorbet

I really liked courses 1-3 - the trout in particular, was cooked to perfection. I'm not a huge fan of rare duck in general (fully cooked duck is so much better, in my opinion), so I'm not really qualified to judge on the 4th course. Dessert, the 5th course, was pretty fun although a little too sweet to my liking.

In any event, I think it's a steal for what they offer - $55 for the 5 courses. And we got a nice salted caramel with the check. The place was only 75% full on a Saturday night when I went - not sure why!
