Six by Nico’s 11th restaurant location opens as part of a continued expansion drive
Six by Nico, a Glasgow based restaurant group, has opened its third location in the city where it first debuted.
Six by Nico Byres Road is the eleventh restaurant in his growing portfolio, which includes establishments in Scotland, England, and Ireland. The Byres Road location is chef Nico Simeone’s third in Glasgow, with future plans to expand the brand across the UK and the UAE.
The new Byres Road restaurant follows in the footsteps of his Six by Nico restaurants in Glasgow, Edinburgh, London Canary Wharf, and Dublin, and features a carefully curated and constantly evolving tasting menu. Byres Road, like all other Six by Nico locations, will debut a TOKYO – themed menu with dishes inspired by Chicken Karaage to their take on the classic Ramen, with each course serving as the perfect transition to the next.
Nico and his team will re-invent the dining experience every six weeks, serving a brand new six-course tasting menu, each one themed on a different place, memory, or idea. Six by Nico combines different ingredients, flavours, and dishes to bring memories and stories together to create a brand new dining experience every 6 weeks, drawing inspiration from both at home and abroad, such as the street markets of the Middle East to a journey across Route 66 in America.
Chef Nico Simeone said:
“We are very excited to open a third restaurant in Glasgow. Byres Road is an ideal location for us in Glasgow’s vibrant West End, known for its top attractions, quirky lanes, and incredible food scene. Expansion in the city where our concept began is an important step in our plan to expand this year. In Glasgow, we have quickly built an enthusiastic base of repeat customers as well as an extremely loyal customer base. We are very excited to introduce to both returning and new customers a new restaurant design”.
Sixco Group, the owners of Six by Nico Byres Road, commissioned Glasgow-based contractors One Call to re-imagine the new restaurant space at the former Fopp records store at 358 Byres Road in Glasgow’s West End. One Call CEO, Mario Formasano said:
“We’ve been collaborating with Nico since 2017, when his first Six by Nico restaurant opened in Finnieston. The Byres Road unit has signature Six by Nico style features such as the open theatre kitchen, raw metal display units, antique brass bar gantries, Venetian plastered walls, and teal wall panelling, as well as a dispense bar, new customer toilets, and prep kitchen”.
Chris Gallagher of Burns Design said:
“Burns Design were tasked with taking the existing ground floor of the once iconic Fopp Records building on Byres Road and converting it into the latest Six by Nico, the first in Glasgow since 2017. Working with One Call, we added some new design elements to the interior’s such as brass toned fabrics and abstract artwork unique to the Six by Nico brand.”
The concept was born in Finnieston Glasgow in 2017 from a passion of experimenting with new ingredients and developing and creating unique dishes. Six by Nico has locations in Glasgow, Glasgow Southside, Edinburgh City Centre, Manchester, Liverpool, London Fitzrovia, London Canary Wharf, Belfast, Dublin and their most recent opening in Aberdeen.
