The much loved Six by Nico restaurant in Belfast will once again open its doors on Wednesday 15th July serving up ‘The Chippie’ menu. The conceptual dining experience is the brainchild of Scottish-Italian chef, Nico Simeone – the man behind the cherished restaurant brand.


Following 12 weeks of closure due to Covid-19, the team can reveal that the eagerly anticipated first six-week menu is ‘The Chippie 2.0’. The popular theme first introduced to launch the Belfast restaurant in 2019 has been elevated and refined to offer Six by Nico customers an extraordinary new food and drink adventure.

‘The Chippie 2.0’ will re-ignite the series of evolving concepts – which includes a six-course tasting-menu, providing a nostalgic nod to the traditional fish and chip shop. Items on the menu are creatively re-imaged with an extra contemporary twist, giving people a fun and unexpected dining experience.

Dishes on ‘The Chippie 2.0’ menu includes; Chips & Cheese (Parmesan Espuma & Crisp / Curry Oil / Brandade Croquette / Vinegar Powder / Brown Sauce); Scrabster Monkfish(Cheek / Dill Emulsion / Gribiche / Peas / Beurre Blanc); Steak Pie (Speyside Beef Shin / Burnt Onion Ketchup / Mushroom Duxelle / ‘Meaty Salsa’); Fish Supper (Shetland Cod / Pickled Mussels / Confit Fennel / Samphire / Beer Emulsion; Smoked Sausage (Trio of Pork / Apple / Black Pudding / Salt Baked Celeriac / Choucroute) and finally back by very popular demand, Deep Fried Mars Bar for dessert (Chocolate Pave / Blood Orange Sorbet / Cocoa Nib). A separate vegetarian menu is also available.

Chef Nico Simeone said;

“The Chippie was originally designed to bring a sense of fun and nostalgia, and when talking to our team and Six by Nico community about which menu we wanted to re-open with, it was clear we wanted to bring those feelings back.

When we first opened here in Belfast, ‘The Chippie’ was hugely popular so not only does this mean our existing customers get the opportunity to experience a new version, but it gives us the chance to share it with even more people the second time around”.

The restaurant will re-open with a reduced capacity, allowing 60 guests to dine in one sitting.

Nico added; “I’m really proud of the work the team has put in behind the scenes throughout the pandemic. The Six by Nico experience is something that is really special to us and while we have a reduced capacity, the experience will not be compromised.”

Six by Nico continue to work extremely hard behind the scenes to make everything as safe for their team and customers as possible. With this in mind, they have introduced a new ‘Wellbeing’ policy across their restaurants in line with UK government guidelines. Please visit, www.sixbynico.co.uk/wellbeing to learn more.

In April, Chef Nico Simeone launched Home by Nico across Belfast, Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow and Edinburgh to allow people to experience Six by Nico in their homes. Home delivery kits proved a huge success from the restaurant brand serving over 100,00 customers during lockdown. Home by Nico will be paused as the teams focus on re-opening all Six by Nico restaurants and plans for the food delivery business will be revealed later this year. Six by Nico London, located in Fitzrovia, will also open for the first time ever on Monday July 20th.

Diners can book a table now for ‘The Chippie 2.0’, which runs from Wednesday 15th July – Sunday 6th September 2020. Open from midday, Monday through to Sunday, each six-course menu will be available from noon to night. The menu will be priced at £29 per person and diners will have the option to enjoy an expertly selected wine pairing for an additional £26. ‘The Chippie’ themed snacks of Sourdough Bread, Shellfish Butter and Filo Cannelloni / Taramasalata / Lemon Gel / Keta Caviar are also available at £5 per person.
