Six by Nico Aberdeen will be the tenth restaurant in his expanding portfolio, which includes locations in Scotland, England, and Ireland.

The Aberdeen restaurant will be Nico Simeone's first in North East Scotland, with plans to expand the brand across the UK in the future.

The new Union Street restaurant, which will take over the former Topolabamba restaurant space, will follow in the footsteps of his Six by Nico restaurants in Glasgow, Edinburgh, London Canary Wharf, and Dublin, and will feature a carefully curated and constantly evolving tasting menu.

Six by Nico Aberdeen will open on Thursday 28 April 28 at 367 Union St, and has announced 'The Chipper' as its first theme.

'The Chipper' menu, which pays homage to the iconic fish and chip shop, will kick-start a series of new themed six-course tasting menus that will change every six weeks. 

The themes draw inspiration from both at home and abroad, and have included dishes inspired the street markets of the Middle East and a journey across Route 66 in America.

The restaurant and bar will be located in the heart of Aberdeen City Centre. Each menu will tell a different story, taking guests on a new and exciting journey each time they visit, using food as a narrative.

Each new chapter will be a surprise, and new menus will be revealed two weeks before the next theme.

Speaking ahead of the launch chef Nico Simeone from Simeone Group said: "We are thrilled to bring Six by Nico to Aberdeen this spring.

"During the pandemic, we launched our Home by Nico dining range on HOME-X - our home delivery experiences - and the appetite in Aberdeen and surrounding areas was strong, making it an obvious choice for our first restaurant site outside of Scotland's central belt due to its thriving foodie community.

"Expansion into Aberdeen signals our first move into Scotland's North East and a significant step in our plan to grow further this year.

"In the nine locations where we operate in the UK and Ireland, we have quickly established an enthusiastic base of repeat customers, and we intend to and look forward to doing the same in Aberdeen".

Andy Temple, chief creative officer at Six by Nico added: "We are very excited to launch the new Aberdeen restaurant and 'The Chipper' menu this month.

"Most people are familiar with the tastes and smells of their neighbourhood chip shop, and we wanted to re-invent the chipper menu to create a playful food experience that Aberdonians would recognise and be amazed by.

"We’re thrilled to be opening in Granite City, and delighted to be incorporating the best of local produce into everything we do.

"We are excited to bring a completely new offering and dining experience to the city and can't wait to open our doors on April 28th".

The concept was born in Glasgow in 2017 from a passion of experimenting with new ingredients and developing and creating unique dishes.

Six by Nico has locations in Glasgow, Glasgow Southside, Edinburgh City Centre, Manchester, Liverpool, London Fitzrovia, London Canary Wharf, Belfast and their most recent opening in Dublin, Ireland.

Simeone Group has commissioned Glasgow-based designers Burns Design to create the new city centre restaurant.

Diners can book a table now for 'The Chipper', which runs from Thursday 28 April – Sunday, 5 June 2022.
