New York restaurant Koi, which is located in Donald Trump's SoHo building, is to close its doors after the once-celebrity hotspot saw a decline in diners following President Trump winning the election.
Servers at the restaurant, which is owned by Koi Group, were forced to take second jobs because business was so slow.

Speaking to Grub Street, Suzanne Chou, Koi Group's general counsel, said: "Obviously, the restaurant is closing because business is down. I don't think anyone would volunteer to close a business if they were making money. Beyond that, I would prefer not to speculate as to why, but obviously since the election it's gone down."
Jonathan Grullon, who works at Koi, told the food blog: "Before Trump won we were doing great. There were a lot of people we had, our regulars, who'd go to the hotel but are not affiliated with Trump. And they were saying if he wins, we are not coming here anymore."
The New York Post reports that the restaurant is set to close on June 18 and will serve a limited menu until then.
