Two Lights restaurant announces closure

Two Lights restaurant in London's Shoreditch has announced it is closing as Covid-19 restrictions have made the business "untenable".

The team behind the nearby Clove Club supported the restaurant's former head chef Chase Lovecky to open the venue in 2018.

A post on the restaurant's Instagram page said: "It is with great sadness that we announce the closure of the restaurant. Like so many of our peers from the first lock down in March we have had huge obstacles to try and over come and unfortunately the recent curfew, tier restrictions and this second lock down have finally made the continuation of the restaurant untenable."

Lovecky worked for the Clove Club as head chef for three years, having previously worked at Momofuku Group's Ko in New York and its Seiobo restaurant in Sydney, Australia. Prior to that, he also worked for Hugo's restaurant in Maine in the US, as well as for Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
