Glasgow chef Nico Simeone has revealed details of how his Six By Nico restaurants will look out of lockdown.
The restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh will open their doors on Friday July 17, with the much loved menu ‘The Chippie’.
Restaurants will re-open with a reduced capacity and for the first time ever, Six by Nico Finnieston, Southside and Edinburgh will be open on Mondays.
Glasgow Finnieston will welcome up to 24 guests, Glasgow Southside 22 guests and Edinburgh City 42 guests in one sitting. This will be monitored continuously.
Nico said: “I’m really proud of the work the team has put in behind the scenes throughout the pandemic.
“The Six by Nico experience is something that is really special to us, and while we have a reduced capacity the experience will not be compromised.”
The Six by Nico team says it has worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make the dining experience as safe as possible for staff and customers.
The restaurant brand has introduced a new ‘Wellbeing Policy’ across their restaurants in line with UK government guidelines.

The six-course ‘The Chippie 2.0’ menu signals the return of the UK restaurants and their series of evolving dining experiences.
The popular take on the traditional fish and chip shop was the first theme introduced to launch the Glasgow Finnieston restaurant in 2017 and Edinburgh City Centre restaurant in 2018.
Nico says it and has been elevated and refined to offer Six by Nico customers an “extraordinary new & nostalgic food and drink adventure”.
Dishes on ‘The Chippie 2.0’ menu include; Chips & Cheese (Parmesan Espuma & Crisp / Curry Oil / Brandade Croquette / Vinegar Powder / Brown Sauce); Scrabster Monkfish (Cheek / Dill Emulsion / Gribiche / Peas / Beurre Blanc); Steak Pie (Speyside Beef Shin / Burnt Onion Ketchup / Mushroom Duxelle / ‘Meaty Salsa’); Fish Supper (Shetland Cod / Pickled Mussels / Confit Fennel / Samphire / Beer Emulsion; Smoked Sausage (Trio of Pork / Apple / Black Pudding / Salt Baked Celeriac / Choucroute) and finally back by very popular demand, Deep Fried Mars Bar for dessert (Chocolate Pave / Blood Orange Sorbet / Cocoa Nib). A vegetarian option is available for each course.
Nico said: “The Chippie was originally designed to bring a sense of fun & nostalgia, and when talking to our team and Six by Nico community about which menu we wanted to re-open with, it was clear we wanted to bring those feelings back.
“When we launched our restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh, The Chippie was hugely popular so not only does this mean our existing customers get the opportunity to experience a new version, but it gives us the chance to share it with even more people the second time around.”
In April, Chef Nico Simeone launched Home by Nico across Belfast, Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow and Edinburgh to allow people to experience Six by Nico from the comfort of their own homes.
The home delivery kits proved a huge success from the restaurant brand, who have served over 100,000 customers to date during lockdown.
Home by Nico will be paused as the teams focus on re-opening all Six by Nico restaurants and plans for the food delivery business will be revealed later this year.
Six by Nico London, located in Fitzrovia, will also open for the first time ever on Monday July 20.
