This relaxed but stylish neighbourhood café, bar & restaurant is one of the most interesting openings in Leicester for some years. 100&Six serves tempting, original small plates and top quality drinks including cocktails.
Look out for creative and wildly eclectic plates of food ranging from Jerusalem artichoke bhaji with lime curry leaf and apple pickle, to lime and tequila salt cod with saffron aioli and squid ink cracker. Don’t leave without trying the sensational treacle and barley candied bacon strips.
Owner is Kal Ruparell, who formerly ran the nearby Bar Dos Hermanos and more recently has set up the cool cocktail bar 33 Cank Street in Leicester city centre. He’s created something truly original.
