Countdown to closure: Restaurant owner pleads for investor to keep doors open

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Otago News

It's been a rough few years for Wanaka restaurateur Lucas Parkinson.

When he first opened his restaurant, Ode Conscious Dining, he had to work to convince the locals to give his organic set menus a try. Then the restaurant burnt down just as he was getting them, and the critics, on side.

It's been a rough few years for Wanaka restaurateur Lucas Parkinson.

When he first opened his restaurant, Ode Conscious Dining, he had to work to convince the locals to give his organic set menus a try. Then the restaurant burnt down just as he was getting them, and the critics, on side.

Then it wasn't long before coronavirus hit the headlines, countries began closing borders and the Prime Minister announced lockdown. Parkinson lost 70 per cent of his bookings, who were mostly international travellers, in quick order.

To save it now, Ode needs a “six-figure” investment. The restaurant will close November 8, and if there is no viable offer on the table by the end of the year, it will not reopen.
