Thanks to its ongoing success, Six by Nico - the six weekly changing tasting menu venue - has announced a new restaurant.

Six by Nico Southside will be located in the former home of Nico's Supper Club on Nithsdale Road in Glasgow and will be the fifth restaurant for the Six by Nico portfolio.

Consumer demand has been on the up for the original Glasgow restaurant, with a staggering six thousand customer bookings snapped up every month.

The Finnieston restaurant, which operates on 98 per cent capacity throughout the week, is fully booked at weekends until early 2020.

Planning is currently underway at the development kitchen on Nithsdale Road, and the new Six by Nico Southside will add a further 30 covers per service for Glaswegian diners when it opens on October 4th.

This brings availability across both Glasgow sites in-line with restaurant capacities at Six by Nico restaurant sites in Edinburgh, Manchester and Belfast.

Chef Nico said: "Our team care passionately about our customers and our community, and I’m looking forward to ensuring we continue to influence the hospitality industry as well as building on the continued success of the company.

"With a new Six by Nico is Glasgow's Southside and a growing customer base in the city, we can meet and deliver consumer expectations".

Earlier this year, Six by Nico announced its expansion plans after the success of both Glasgow and Edinburgh locations. Following on from the launch of its Belfast restaurant on Waring Street in March, the Six by Nico group recently added a City Centre site in Manchester to its portfolio.

The business, founded by chef Nico Simeone, opened its first site in Glasgow's Finnieston in 2017 and has grown to employ over 200 people across its UK venues including Six by Nico in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Belfast and Manchester, 111 by Nico in Glasgow's West End and The Hebridean on Glasgow' Great Western Road.

Six by Nico Southside will launch with the New York themed concept menu and will be open from midday every Friday, Saturday and Sundays only. The site will continue to serve as the brands development kitchen during the week.
