Nico Simeone is set to bring his Glasgow dining concept to Aberdeen this Spring when he opens ‘Six by Nico’ in Scotland’s North East, his first in the area and his 10th across the UK and Ireland. The restaurant and bar will be located in the heart of Aberdeen City Centre in Union Street taking over the former Topolabamba restaurant space.
Following in the footsteps of his other Six by Nico restaurants it will feature a carefully curated and constantly evolving tasting menu that re-invents the dining experience every six weeks, serving a brand new six-course tasting menu, each one themed on a different place, memory, or idea drawing inspiration from home and abroad, such as the street markets of the Middle East to a journey across Route 66 in America. Each new chapter will be a surprise, and new menus will be revealed two weeks before the next theme.
Chef Nico Simeone from Simeone Group said, “We are thrilled to bring Six by Nico to Aberdeen this Spring. During the pandemic, we launched our Home by Nico dining range on HOME-X – our home delivery experiences – and the appetite in Aberdeen and surrounding areas was strong, making it an obvious choice for our first restaurant site outside of Scotland’s central belt due to its thriving foodie community.
Expansion into Aberdeen signals our first move into Scotland’s North East and a significant step in our plan to grow further this year. In the nine locations where we operate in the UK and Ireland, we have quickly established an enthusiastic base of repeat customers, and we intend to and look forward to doing the same in Aberdeen”.
Simeone Group has commissioned Glasgow-based designers Burns Design to create the new city centre restaurant, which is currently under construction.
