Renowned Scottish-Italian chef, Nico Simeone, is set to introduce his Glasgow and Edinburgh dining concept Six by Nico to Northern Ireland.
Six by Nico Belfast will be the third addition to the growing restaurant brands portfolio, taking Nico’s conceptual restaurant idea out of Scotland for the first time and placing it in Belfast’s bustling Cathedral Quarter.
Chef Nico said: ‘We are very excited to bring an unforgettable culinary experience to Belfast. I have visited the city and I grew up with an understanding of the strong Ulster Scots connection.
‘Belfast is the perfect location for our next venture and I couldn’t think of a better location than the vibrant food and drinks scene of the Cathedral Quarter. We are really looking forward to collaborating with local businesses and have people from the city join our team.’
The £500,000 investment will bring the introduction of a pioneering revolving culinary hub as 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, Nico and his team will combine different ingredients, flavours, and dishes, to bring memories and stories creating a brand-new dining experience every six weeks.
With the opening, comes exciting new job prospects and there are plans in place to create 40 news jobs in the local area.
The creative and ever-evolving six course set menu, will be priced at £28 per person to match the brands Glasgow and Edinburgh counterparts.
Six by Nico Belfast on Waring Street will open its doors in March 2019, becoming the latest addition to the city’s burgeoning restaurant and bar scene. From creative menu concepts to outstanding food and service, the venue will aim to become an immediate hit with the people of Belfast.
