The team behind the popular restaurant Six by Nico has announced that they are bringing a new steak house to Glasgow.  

Chateau-X will serve exclusively Chateaubriand steaks at a brand new venue in the Finnieston area. 

It will be opened by the Simeone Group, who have already had success with Six by Nico, HOME-X and most recently the charity restaurant Beat 6. 

Six By Nico founder Nico Simeone said: “From the time we started talking about launching the Chateau-X restaurant idea, we knew everything had to revolve around the perfectly executed Chateaubriand.

"We've taken this much-loved restaurant classic and improved it with seasonally inspired sides and attention to every detail that will set us apart from the competition.”

Diners can look forward to a 500g Chateaubriand, priced £30 for two, and a choice of six sides, which will be updated seasonally. 

The first six sides will be beef dripping rooster chips, barbecue hispi cabbage with black garlic and aged ewes cheese, mac & cheese croquettes with chipotle emulsion, roasted sprouted broccoli with buttermilk and tarragon dressing, bone marrow and oxtail with parsley crust and finally, a classic Caesar salad with aged parmesan.

Also on offer will be warm sourdough bread from Soja Bakery, whipped butter and gordal olives, and soft serve ice cream for  those with a sweet tooth.

Andrew Temple is the head of creative for Six By Nico and he oversaw the Chateau-X menu design.

He added: "Our objective has always been to provide incredible value for money to our community through our food and drink experiences.

"We were so excited and passionate about disrupting the market when we debuted the Six by Nico tasting menu to Glasgow, and we are equally as excited and passionate about bringing a new concept that will focus on this wonderful cut of beef, Chateaubriand."

The team has promised that the new venue will source all of its produce from locally sourced farms and suppliers.

They are working with John Gilmour Butchers, based in Tranent and Cairnhill Farm in Girvan, and Peter Borgan of Urban Grocer. 

Chateaubriand steaks have already proved popular for the group, who during lockdown delivered them to customers through their service HOME-X. 

Over 10,000 orders for the Chateau-X box have been placed to date, and the meal has been enjoyed by celebrities including Jack Whitehall, Ferne McCann and Jenni Falconer.

Nico added: “As a business we are really tuned into what our customers want and we invest a lot of time into researching and refining our menus.

"Over the past 12 months it became very clear that our Chateau-X boxes were a huge hit with many of our customers commenting that the quality and simplicity of the ingredients allowed them to create a restaurant standard meal at home.

"The success of the Chateau-X brand so far has all been driven digitally but now it’s time to bring the brand to life with our first restaurant in our home city of Glasgow.

"We are confident the launch will capture the hearts and taste buds of meat loving Scots and I hope our accessible price point ensures this dining experience is accessible to many.”

Chateau-X will open on December 8, while bookings will open to the public on November 23.
