About Nico

Nico is permanently closed.

Modern French restaurant Nico favors clean, modern platings inspired by the best ingredients in the market presented with subtle, attentive service. The sleek restaurant recently reopened in its new Jackson Square location, and the wine program has never been better.

About the Nico Wine List

Nico’s wine list feels complete and approachable, a tightly curated assortment of some of the most alluring bottles from beloved European wine regions alongside California favorites, organized by sub-AVAs. A robust rosé section, which has been divided into two categories, tempts with “classics” (i.e. Tempier and Clos Cibonne) and “upstarts” (for example Spaniard Alfredo Maestro and California’s Rootdown and Lalalu). All this said, one could also be quite content simply hopping around glasses of wine all evening — one is in good hands with savvy wine director Gideon Levine’s killer by-the-glass section.


$35 fee as corkage. Max 2 bottles.
