Six By Nico Edinburgh is a new restaurant concept opening this Spring and the brainchild of Chef Nico Simeone – the man behind the much-loved Glasgow restaurant in Finnieston.

Foodies will be treated to a new restaurant at the same location on Hanover Street in New Town every six weeks and now, the team have announced the theme and name of their first concept.

‘The Chippie’ will kick-start the series of evolving concepts – which includes a six-course tasting-menu – providing a nostalgic nod to the traditional fish and chip shop, with items on the menu including chips and cheese, steak pie, sausage supper and the classic deep fried mars bar.

The restaurant menu will showcase the flavours of the local chip shop for which the UK is framed for worldwide and acknowledges the infamous ‘Salt and Sauce’ condiment, peculiar to Edinburgh and Fife regions, where a mixture of malt vinegar and brown sauce is used to accompany chips or any meal from the local chipshop.

A nostalgic nod to the past, ‘The Chippie’ will serve six dishes based on the classics found in your traditional Scottish Fish and Chip shop – each one re-imagined and re-created with a contemporary twist.

Chef Nico Simeone said,

We are very excited to launch in the capital with ‘The Chippie’ concept. Most people are familiar with the tastes and scents of their local chip shop and we wanted to take the idea of the everyday chippie menu and re-invent it to create a playful food experience that guests would recognise and be amazed by

Diners can book a table now for ‘The Chippie’, which runs from March 30th – May 13th 2018. Open from midday, Tuesday through to Sunday, each six-course menu will be available from noon to night. The menu will be priced at £28 per person and diners will have the option to enjoy an expertly selected wine pairing for an additional £25.

He added.

We couldn’t be more delighted about bringing a completely new offering and dining experience to the people of Edinburgh. By challenging ourselves to do this every six-weeks we feel we have created the perfect recipe for an exciting epicurean adventure for not just our diners, but our team too.

Serverino designs and creative partners blk 29 have been appointed by the team to develop the new city centre restaurant and work is currently underway at the former ‘Passorn Thai’ brasserie site at 97 Hanover Street. Six by Nico plan to create 35 new jobs as they expand their restaurant portfolio in Scotland.
