We are really excited to be here and look forward to becoming better known in the area

The Gate Islington officially opened just a short walk from trendy Upper Street on 1st June. Diners are warmly welcomed and choose from a delicious array of vegetarian cuisine. Multicultural owners Adrian and Michael Daniel are well known for their popular restaurant in Hammersmith (currently under refurbishment) which was opened in 1989.

The Gate brings exciting, refined Indo-Iraqi Jewish cuisine to Islington. Ingredients are sourced and cooked with care to intensify flavour, resulting in beautifully presented delicious food combinations for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. Set against a fine backdrop of high ceilings, original Victorian features, moody lighting, solid ash stained tabletops and industrial steel bar stools, The Gate displays cosy details within a wonderfully comfortable setting. The Gate flaunts individuality along with its vegetarian delights, a rare find in London.

Diners are warmly welcomed by a relaxed atmosphere where they can choose to have a drink at the bar on arrival or be seated ready for their hearty feast. In keeping with the style of The Gate, the bar menu features sweet and savoury cocktails; a few unusual combinations.

Award winning à la carte dishes feature alongside the new Mezze menu; exquisite taster dishes perfect for groups to share whilst lounging on the sofas. Weekend brunch (served 10am until 3pm) is new at The Gate, offering local residents the chance to experience an exciting alternative to the traditional English breakfast. The new set menu is designed to attract lunchtime and early evening / pre-theatre diners; it is great value for 2 or 3 courses and changes daily. Additionally on offer is a tasty selection of starters and salads.

Michael Daniel comments "I am thrilled with the reception of The Gate in the local area. Local businesses and residents alike have been extremely welcoming and seem delighted with our new menus. We are really excited to be here and look forward to becoming better known in the area as word spreads."
