"They were both senior members and great and dear friends," according to a statement.

The restaurant added, "Two uniquely talented young chefs that were loved by everyone who worked with them. They will be sadly and deeply missed."

The purpose of the trip to Hong Kong was for a private event.

Blumenthal, also in Hong Kong, identified the bodies of the two chefs, according The Standard newspaper, which featured a photograph of him with police.

According to Hong Kong police, a bus was traveling downhill and hit two cars, crossed into the other lane and crushed the chefs' taxi against another bus.

In addition to the three deaths, 56 people were injured, including the driver of the other bus, a baby and a 90-year old, according to police officials.
