Nico Simeone is set to open his third restaurant this year with the launch of a second Six by Nico location in his home city of Glasgow next month.

Occupying the Southside space previously used by Simeone as a development kitchen, the 30-cover restaurant will mark the chef’s fifth iteration of his ‘ever-evolving’ Six dining concept that he established just two years ago.

As with Simeone's other Six by Nico sites, the restaurant will serve a six-course tasting menu that changes every six weeks and is themed around different places, memories and ideas.

Earlier this year the Scottish-born Simeone – who launched the first Six by Nico in Finnieston, Glasgow, in 2017 – opened his first restaurants outside of Scotland in Belfast and Manchester respectively.

Speaking to BigHospitality ​last month, Simeone said that going forward he was keen to double down and further expand the Six by Nico concept​.

“[It’s] my passion, and I have an incredible team supporting me so I am very keen to see how far I can take it,” he said.

Born in Glasgow to Italian parents, Simeone, who previously cooked at the Michelin-starred Number One at Balmoral, launched his debut restaurant 111 by Nico in Glasgow in 2011.

Simeone also operates Six by Nico restaurant in Edinburgh.
