It won Best Café at the Time Out Dubai Restaurant Awards in February, but due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, Lowe has ceased operation.

In a statement released on Instagram, the Lowe team, headed by Jesse Blake and Kate Chirstou, said: “We have had to make the painful decision to end Lower operations, while we take some time to think about our future as a business when this crisis is over.”

The statement added that the team hope to be back in the future but said that “right now we don’t know when this will be, or what format it will take”.

Dubai’s F&B community reacted with grief, with Food Sheik saying it was one of their favourite restaurants to review while 1004 Gourmet founder Chang Sup Shin said the restaurant “changed the food scene in Dubai”.
