ABOUT US

Adrian and Michael Daniel have been running London’s most successful vegetarian restaurant since December 1989. The cooking at the Gate reflects the diverse cultural background in which we grew up – what one might call Indo-Iraqi Jewish. Our grandmothers blended Indian and Arabic cuisines with traditional Jewish food.

It seemed perfectly natural that we should apply the same principles at the restaurant. The food we serve is the food of our childhood, modulated by French and Italian influences. When we opened the Gate, we had had no formal training and knew nothing about running a restaurant – we were just a couple of guys who knew what we liked to eat – but we knew that food was sacred and should be celebrated.

At the restaurant we try to do just that: celebrate the food. This means, amongst other things, that we source our ingredients with care; we intensify flavour by careful cooking and by combining ingredients in unexpected ways. We try to make our dishes as visually pleasing as possible; and we try and do this in a fun and relaxed way.

We opened our second branch in June 2012 in Islington and are about to open our third in December 2016 in Marylebone.

We started with passion and creativity and we maintain that passion  and creativity today.
