Chef Michael Symon’s flagship restaurant Lola Bistro in Cleveland has closed permanently.
The decision to close was made after two employees tested positive for COVID-19, which required the restaurant to temporarily shut down, according to multiple other media reports.
The restaurant first opened by Michael and Liz Symon in Cleveland’s Tremont neighborhood in 1997 and relocated to East Fourth Street in 2006. The restaurant would have celebrated its 24th anniversary in March 2021.
Symon also permanently shuttered B Spot Burger locations in Crocker Park in Westlake and Strongsville. Mabel’s BBQ, also at East Fourth Street, and B Spot at Eton Chagrin Boulevard in Woodmere, remain open.
