Six by Nico Belfast will be Simeone's first restaurant outside Scotland and will be located on Waring Street.
Expected to open its doors in March, the restaurant has required an investment of £500,000
The "creative and ever-evolving six course set menu" will be priced at £28 per person inline with the concept's Glasgow and Edinburgh locations.
“We are very excited to bring an unforgettable culinary experience to Belfast," says Simone. "I have visited the city and I grew up with an understanding of the strong Ulster Scots connection."
Belfast is the perfect location for our next venture and I couldn’t think of a better location than the vibrant food and drinks scene of the Cathedral Quarter. We are really looking forward to collaborating with local businesses and have people from the city join our team.”
In common with the other Six By Nico restaurants, Simeone will completely change the menu every six weeks. Each menu is themed on "a different place, memory, or idea".
Born in Glasgow, to Italian parents, Simone's CV includes Number One at Balmoral and Brian Maule’s Chardon d’Or. In 2015 he opened '111 by Nico' in Glasgow's West End and in 2017 'Six by Nico' opened in Finnieston, Glasgow and Six by Nico in Edinburgh in 2018.
