Launched in Glasgow by Scottish-Italian chef Nico Simeone (previously at the Michelin-starred Number One at Balmoral), Six By Nico has locations up and down the country from Edinburgh and Manchester to Liverpool and now London's Fitrovia. The 80 cover space juxtaposes industrial elements - think exposed pipes - with a theatrical open kitchen and warm, atmospheric lighting in a raw and informal setting.
As with Simeone's other ‘ever-evolving’ sites, the restaurant serves a six-course tasting (high-concept) menu - at affordable prices, at just £35 - with an optional wine pairing priced at £33. Every six weeks the restaurants overhauls its menu based on a 'food story' and never serves the same menu twice. Previous themes have included reimagining childhood favourites to exploring the culinary delights of destinations such as Catalonia, Mexico and The Middle East.
