This March, renowned Scottish-Italian chef and founder of the acclaimed ‘111 by Nico’, Nico Simeone, will launch his second restaurant in Glasgow, ‘Six by Nico’.
Located in the heart of Finnieston, Glasgow’s thriving new social centre, Six by Nico will be home to a series of carefully curated and constantly evolving restaurant concepts.
Pioneering a revolving culinary hub, every six weeks, Nico and his experienced and well- travelled team will re-invent the wheel – serving a brand new six-course tasting-menu – each one themed upon a different place, memory or idea.
Drawing global inspiration from places such as the fish markets of Aberdeen to the vineyards of South America, the team will combine different ingredients, flavours, and dishes, to bring their memories to life. Using food as a narrative, each menu will tell a different story, taking guests on a new and exciting journey each time they visit.
As with any great novel, each new chapter will be kept a surprise, until the time comes to turn the page. New menus will therefore remain secret and only be published two-weeks prior to the launch of each new concept.
Kick-starting the series will be ‘The Chippie’. Running from Tuesday 14th March to Sunday 23rd April, this restaurant will showcase the ‘Best of British’ flavours for which the United Kingdom is famed for worldwide.
A nostalgic nod to the past, ‘The Chippie’ will serve six dishes based on the classics found in your traditional Fish and Chip shop – each one re-imagined and re-created with a contemporary twist.
The Chippie Menu:
- Chips & Cheese – crisp potato cannelloni with crowdie mousse
- Scampi – Scrabster monkfish cheek, squid ink and herb emulsion
- Steak Pie – Speyside beef shin, onion choucroute and brioche
- Special Fish – Shetland cod with sea vegetable, pickled mussels and taramasalata
- Smoked Sausage – Ayrshire pork with black pudding, apple and celeriac
- Deep Fried Mars Bar – salted caramel, chocolate nougat, malt parfait
Open from midday, Tuesday through to Sunday, each six-course menu will be available from noon to night. The menu will be priced at £25 per person and diners will have the option to enjoy an expertly selected wine pairing for an additional £25. An extensive selection of world wines [served by the glass and bottle] and local beers will also be available, as well as a list of specialty signatures drinks. Alongside our traditional 'Chippie' Menu, we have our 'Chippie' themed Vegetarian Option. All other dietary requirements (i.e. Vegan, Dairy Free etc) can be accommodated in advance.
“We are very excited to launch this innovative culinary venture. It is the first of it’s kind in Glasgow and one that we hope will add to the appeal of the already burgeoning restaurant scene in Finnieston.
This is a real passion project – the concept was born from our team’s love of experimenting with new ingredients and developing and creating new dishes. By challenging ourselves to do this every six-weeks we feel we have created the perfect recipe for an exciting epicurean adventure for not just our diners, but our team too.”
Split over two floors, the main restaurant upstairs will showcase an open-plan kitchen, so that guest are able to see the masters at work.
An intimate venue with forty covers, the restaurant will boast a minimal design, starkly contrasted by grand fixtures and fittings and atmospheric mood lighting. The lower floor will house a PDR, to be launched later in the year.
