What: Two Lights
In a nutshell: Clove Club's head chef opens an American restaurant
Summing it all up: The team behind The Clove Club have a new restaurant on the way - but it's a bit of a departure for them. This time they're helping American chef Chase Lovecky open his own restaurant in Dalston.
They've already had two big successes on their hands with their first restaurant The Clove Club and the Italian follow-up Luca, and now the same team is getting ready to open up a third restaurant. But this time they're backing American chef Chase Lovecky (who's been head chef at The Clove Club for three years) to set up his own restaurant called Two Lights.
The restaurant isn't too far from the Clove Club, it's just up Kingsland Road, and according to an Instagram post by Isaac Mc Hale, we know it'll be "a neighbourhood spot, serving modern American food." Talking about Lovecky, he says:
Chase was Head Chef under me at Clove for 3 years, before that he was at momofuku KO and momofuku Seiobo, and even further back spent time at Jean George and at Hugo’s in Maine. Chase is a rare talent, a grafter, a lifer, an all-day all-nighter dedicated to the cause of making people have amazing meals and he is going to make a lot of people very happy. Go Chase!
The story, broken by Eater, will be taking over Amici Mei, on Kingsland Road.
We'll have more info on the menu as soon as we get it.
