Inside Nico’s dining room, brocade wallpaper creeps up to high ceilings, where modern-style chandeliers hang over wooden tables and bright-green booths. Amid this scene, or outdoors under bright red umbrellas, the wait staff brings dishes that showcase original twists on traditional flavors hailing from Spain, Morocco, Italy, and France. Pastas, steaks, and seafood stews are the highlights of the dinner menu, while lunchers dine on sandwiches and weekend brunchers sample omelets and Catalonian sausage.
