Scottish-Italian chef, Nico Simeone, is set to open his first London site this spring in London’s Fitzrovia. Located on Charlotte Street, Six by Nico is the first London project from Nico Simeone and his seventh opening in the UK.
Simeone’s culinary narrative was first born in his native Glasgow and has expanded at a dynamic pace with sister restaurants now in Edinburgh, Belfast, Manchester and Liverpool.
Tasting menus are priced to make his food accessible to all with a price point of £35 with a wine pairing option of £33.
The Six by Nico concept began in Glasgow in 2017 from a passion for experimenting with new ingredients and developing and creating unique dishes.
Born in Glasgow to Italian parents, Simeone was raised in a family with Mediterranean influences. His earliest memories are of his mother’s Italian cooking, helping her in the kitchen and large family meals around the dinner table. His colourful career has included stints at Michelin starred Number One at The Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh and his accolades include Young Scottish Seafood Chef of the Year.
Tasked with bringing Six by Nico’s accessible style to Soho are Glasgow based designers, Severino. The 80 cover space juxtaposes industrial elements such as exposed pipes with an inviting theatrical open kitchen and warm, atmospheric lighting in a raw and informal setting. Work is currently underway at the former Zizzi restaurant site at 33-41 Charlotte Street, London. Six by Nico London plan to create 40 new jobs as they expand their restaurant portfolio across the UK and Ireland.
Looking forward to opening in spring Chef Nico Simeone said: “We are very excited to bring an unforgettable culinary experience to London. With its central location, Charlotte Street provides us with a great opportunity to join the city’s thriving restaurant scene.
“Restaurant trends are moving towards experiential dining and at Six by Nico our menus are inspired by great memories and interesting stories. Our new London restaurant site will create the perfect recipe for an exciting epicurean adventure.”
