Michelin-starred restaurant Ellory is set to close its doors next month, when owners Jack Lewens and Ed Thaw move to a new site in Shoreditch.
Ellory’s last service will be on 4 March, with new restaurant Leroy opening on 19 March.
A statement posted to the restaurant’s Instagram page reads: “Ellory was the product of many things. Great people, amazing suppliers and fantastic customers. It’s been an extraordinary ride over two years. Our last service will be Sunday 4th March and we begin a new chapter with Leroy in Shoreditch.
“The name is one of our pet names for Ellory since many people couldn’t seem to say our name properly. Some things will be the same but many will be different. We hope to see you as many of you as possible for this final month and welcome you to our new home in Shoreditch on the 19th of March. There will be more details on this account which will evolve in due course. With love and thanks Ed, Jack and Sam. Vive Leroy!”
Ellory in Amhurst Terrace, Hackney, has been listed as available to rent from 16 March on Rightmove, Eater London revealed on Tuesday.
