Scottish-Italian chef brings six-weekly menu concept to Edinburgh
GLASGOW-based Scottish-Italian chef Nico Simeone is set to open his first restaurant outwith the city with a new venue in the Scottish capital.
The Edinburgh new town restaurant, Six by Nico, will be home to a series of “carefully curated and constantly evolving” menus, which are switched up every six weeks and are said to replicate the concept of Simeone’s Glasgow-based Six by Nico eatery, which opened last year.
Each menu will aim to tell a different story – themed upon a different place, memory or idea – with each iteration kept under wraps and published two weeks prior to the introduction of the next theme.
Six by Nico will open in April in a 2500 sq ft unit on Edinburgh’s Hanover Street, which will house the 70-cover restaurant, wine and cocktail bar.
It will feature a minimal design that is contrasted by “grand fixtures and fittings”, as well as an open-plan kitchen visible to diners.
Six by Nico, in Edinburgh, will be the third addition to Simeone’s restaurant portfolio, joining 111 by Nico and Six by Nico in Glasgow, which are located in the city’s Kelvinside and Finnieston areas respectively.
Simeone said: “We are very excited to bring an unforgettable culinary experience to Edinburgh.”
