Renowned Scottish-Italian chef, Nico Simeone, is set to introduce his latest dining concept to Edinburgh this April when he opens ‘Six by Nico‘ on Hanover Street, the former ‘Passorn Thai’ brasserie site at 97 Hanover Street.
‘Six by Nico’ in Edinburgh will be the third addition to his growing restaurant portfolio, with award winning venues including ‘111 by Nico‘ and ‘Six by Nico’ already well embedded in Glasgow’s restaurant scene.
The Edinburgh New Town restaurant will replicate the concept of his Glasgow venue in Finnieston and will be home to a series of carefully curated and constantly evolving menu concepts.
Pioneering a revolving culinary hub, every six weeks, Nico and his team will re-invent the wheel – serving a brand new six-course tasting-menu – each one themed upon a different place, memory or idea. Drawing inspiration from both at home and abroad such as the docklands of Leith to the vineyards of South America, Nico and his team will combine different ingredients, flavours, and dishes, to bring memories and stories creating a brand new dining experience every 6 weeks.
The 2500 sq foot venue on Hanover Street will house a 70-cover restaurant, a wine and cocktail bar and will offer the very best of beautifully sourced produce.
Using food as a narrative, each menu will tell a different story, taking guests on a new and exciting journey each time they visit. Each new chapter will be kept a surprise and new menus will remain secret and published two-weeks prior to the next theme.
Chef Nico Simeone said, “We are very excited to bring an unforgettable culinary experience to Edinburgh. We have been overwhelmed by the success and the appeal of our first ‘Six by Nico’ in Glasgow, and we couldn’t be more delighted about bringing a completely new offering and dining experience to the people of Edinburgh”.
The concept was born in Glasgow in 2017 from a passion of experimenting with new ingredients and developing and creating unique dishes.
Six by Nico Edinburgh promises to be as eye catching as it is delicious. It will boast a minimal design, starkly contrasted by grand fixtures and fittings with atmospheric mood lighting. The restaurant will feature a modern design open kitchen on view to all.
Six by Nico will open it’s doors in April 2018.
