RESTAURANT Operator Six By Nico Wants To Add To Dennistoun’s ‘Bohemian Buzz’

SIX By Nico Holdings Ltd have applied to open a restaurant in an empty Glasgow East End laundrette.

Documents submitted to the planning department state the premises at Whitehill Street, Dennistoun — to be known as Grub — would become a “casual, neighbourhood dining restaurant with a gourmet twist”.

The proposal comes just a few weeks after Six By Nico applied to turn the former Peckham’s deli in Glasgow’s West End into a restaurant.

There would be seating for around 50 people plus French doors opening out on to an external dining area.

A statement provided to the City Council explains: “The main East End arteries of Duke Street and Alexandra Parade  are fast becoming a lively cosmopolitan area with Bohemian lifestyles infiltrating this section of the city.

“This new restaurant will only add to the buzz and social scene for the neighbourhood.”

It continues: “The internal design will be keeping exposed fireplaces and some exposed masonry with the addition of a quirky shop-fitted bar.”

The application is pending assessment by officials.
