A new restaurant is coming to Spring Gardens – and the menu will completely change every six weeks


Scottish-Italian chef, Nico Simeone, is set to introduce a new dining concept to Manchester this July when he opens Six by Nico on Spring Gardens.

Six by Nico in Manchester will be the fourth addition to his growing restaurant portfolio, with award winning venues including ‘111 by Nico’ and ‘Six by Nico’ already established in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

With space for 66 diners, Six by Nico plans to create 30 new jobs as they expand their restaurant portfolio in Manchester.

The new Spring Gardens restaurant, which occupies the former Roc & Rye site, will replicate the concept of his Six by Nico restaurants in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Belfast, and will be home to a series of constantly evolving menu concepts.

Every six weeks, Nico and his team will re-invent the dining experience, serving a brand new six-course tasting-menu. Each one will be themed around a different place, memory or idea.

Drawing inspiration from both at home and abroad, from the street markets of the Middle East to a journey across Route 66 in America, Nico and his team will combine different ingredients, flavours, and dishes to create a brand new dining experience every six weeks.

Each new chapter will be kept a surprise and new menus will be published two weeks prior to the next theme.

“We are very excited to bring an unforgettable culinary experience to Manchester,” says Nico.

“It was the obvious choice when looking for our first site in England thanks to its thriving food and drink scene.

“We have been overwhelmed by the success and the appeal of our first Six by Nico sites in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Belfast, and we couldn’t be more delighted about bringing a completely new offering and dining experience to the people of Manchester”.

Six by Nico will open its doors in July 2019 at 60 Spring Gardens.
