“Saumon a l’ oseille” ($38)

Monday, April 15 marked the grand opening of Nico’s Upstairs that, you guessed it, sits atop the popular seafood market and restaurant, Nico’s Pier 38.

Nico’s Upstairs offers guests a fine, elevated experience in the comforts of a spacious dining room that overlooks Pier 38’s boat harbor — throw in a mesmerizing sunset or a shining moon and the mood is more than just right. A full bar in the middle of the dining area provides easy access to order drinks and mingle, while a stage area at the front of the room is home to the eatery’s live, local entertainment.

Chocolate Mousse ($9)

Take a dive into the menu and experience tantalizing tastes sure to keep diners coming back for more.

Prime selections on the dinner menu include “Saumon a l’oseille” ($38), which is pan seared Ora NZ king salmon and Rib Eye Steak ($38). The salmon is a famous dish from France that was invented by Michelin star Troigros. Then, the 14-ounce USDA Choice aged steak is extremely tender, juicy and lovely to eat, and is paired with a side of fries.

Seafood Paella ($20)

Lunchtime brings guests a different selection, but just as tasty. Try your hand at the Seafood Paella ($20) that is a welcoming mix of chorizo, andouille, peas and chef’s selection of seafood, all within tomato saffron scented rice.

Finish things off with Chocolate Mousse ($9), a heavenly confection that will melt in your mouth.

Stop in to this booming and new spot to eat, drink and enjoy, and discover your next favorite.
