Scandinavian-influenced restaurant concept Rök has closed its last site in London's Islington.
"A lot has happened in the last 3.5 years and priorities have changed during this time," wrote owners Matt Young, Charles Bakker and Frida Lindmark on the restaurant's Instagram page.
"Matt wants to move to Sweden to continue his culinary journey, Charles has had two daughters and Frida has a four-month-old son so we feel we no longer have the time and dedication to continue Rök.
"It's been one hell of a ride but we want to bow out on a high, so unfortunately this is it from us at Rök. Thank you to everyone that has supported us, eaten our food and give us fantastic feedback. We will be forever grateful."
The group closed its original restaurant in Shoreditch late last year after three years and announced it had dropped plans to open a new site in Soho, blaming rising rents and operational costs, leaving it with the one site in Islington.Get The Caterer every week on your smartphone, tablet, or even in good old-fashioned hard copy (or all three!).
