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.
