Lark Creek Unexpectedly Closes Its Doors


Lark Creek Restaurant Group abruptly closed its Newport Beach location at Fashion Island mall over the weekend with just a goodbye letter on its door to inform the public.


The letter announced that the restaurant closed its doors as of Saturday, March 28. It also told vendors to contact mall owner, The Irvine Company, and directed its employees to contact Lark Group’s human resources department by email. The closure came as a surprise to guests, vendors, employees and even to The Irvine Co.

Lark Creek opened its Newport location just two years ago when Fashion Island began adding more restaurants to the mall. It was its first farm-to-table restaurant in Orange County.

As of now, there is no word on why the company decided to suddenly close.
