Scottish chef expands to England with new restaurant in Manchester


Scottish-Italian chef, Nico Simeone, is set to introduce his Glasgow dining concept to Manchester this July when he opens ‘Six by Nico’ in England’s north east. 

Six by Nico Manchester will be the fourth addition to his growing restaurant portfolio, with award winning venues including ‘111 by Nico’ and ‘Six by Nico’ already well embedded in Scotland and Northern Ireland’s restaurant scene. 

The 3000 square foot restaurant will be Nico Simeone’s first venture in England, with plans to expand the brand further across the UK in the pipeline. 

The new Spring Gardens restaurant occupying the former Roc & Rye site will replicate the concept of his Six by Nico restaurants in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Belfast.

The space in heart of Manchester City Centre will house a 66-cover restaurant with a wine and spirits bar and will offer the very best of beautifully sourced produce. 

Chef Nico Simeone said; “We are very excited to bring an unforgettable culinary experience to Manchester. It was the obvious choice when looking for our first site in England thanks to its thriving food and drink scene. We have been overwhelmed by the success and the appeal of our first ‘Six by Nico’ sites in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Belfast, and we couldn’t be more delighted about bringing a completely new offering and dining experience to the people of Manchester”

Six by Nico Manchester 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. Nico said, 
“Combining our focus on food and design, we love to create lifestyle dining environments that are dynamic yet relaxed – spaces customers love to dine in”.

Glasgow based designers Severino have been appointed by the team to develop the new city centre restaurant and work is currently underway at the former Roc & Rye site at 60 Spring Gardens. Six by Nico Manchester plan to create 30 new jobs as they expand their restaurant portfolio in England.
