Six by Nico is a place you don’t want to miss out on. The place is a mysterious and ever-evolving culinary concept founded by Chef Nico Simeone in Glasgow, Scotland. Each six weeks, Six by Nico takes guests on a thrilling journey through time, spaces and places with a unique and affordable six course tasting experience. However, once this six week time period is up, each menu will disappear forever – never to be cooked or tasted again…
