James Lowe opened his first restaurant, Lyle’s, in Shoreditch in April 2014. The food is British, produce-led and driven by a common sense philosophy. He was previously head chef at St John Bread & Wine for four years and started the London based chef collective the Young Turks in 2011.
He draws inspiration from a network of farmers and fishermen that he has been working with over the last eight years. His desire is to show people, both at home and abroad, what’s possible with British ingredients through his fresh approach.
Lyle’s was voted 6th place at the Restaurant Magazine 50Best UK Restaurant Awards 2015 and won their first Michelin star in September 2015, eighteen months after opening.
