On 9 August, Scottish chef Nico Simeone will open Six by Nico Canary Wharf, his largest restaurant to date and his second location in London.
The brand's newest site, a 100-cover 4,219 sq ft restaurant with a 20-cover outdoor terrace, will be located on Chancellor Passage. The space will also have a bar area with a further 60 covers.
Like its sister sites, the restaurant will offer a £37 six-course tasting menu that changes every six weeks. The opening theme is yet to be confirmed, with previous themes at other sites including ‘Mad Hatter's tea party', ‘New York', ‘guilty pleasures', ‘Thai street food', ‘Route 66' and ‘Catalonia'.
Simeone said: "We have always had big ambitions and our team are excited to be opening our second London location in Canary Wharf. The restaurant is our biggest yet and it has been a joy to recruit our 50-strong team, especially following the hardest of times that the hospitality industry has weathered.
"We feel incredibly lucky to be in a position to expand our portfolio and I look forward to bringing our one-of-a-kind dining experience to the area. London has always been integral to our growth and Canary Wharf's proximity to the backbone of the city, the Thames, lent itself perfectly to my curated expansion plan."
The new site will be the eighth national location for the group, joining sites in Glasgow Edinburgh, Belfast, Liverpool, Manchester and London's Fitzrovia. There are also plans to open a third location in Simeone's hometown of Glasgow on Byres Road in September 2021.
