Square Meal Review of The Gate Islington ?

The owners of Hammersmith’s veggie icon The Gate have brought their wares to EC1 with a second, clean-lined branch opposite Sadler’s Wells Theatre. Indo/Iraqi/Jewish brothers, Michael and Adrian Daniel, are renowned for their cross-cultural, globally inspired food: spinach, feta and artichoke tart with olive tapenade; pickled fennel, cucumber and quinoa salad with goji berries and pomegranate; chipotle-spiked wild mushrooms with Black Venus rice and samphire; green-vegetable laksa with water chestnuts and aubergine won tons – no veggie blandness here. Desserts are slightly more conservative – fruit trifle, rosewater and pistachio pannacotta, chocolate and orange steamed pudding, say. Also look out for daily set deals aimed at the lunch and theatre crowd, weekend brunch, an all-day mezze bar menu and an eclectic wine list bristling with enterprising organic, biodynamic and vegan bottles.

    Rate My Bistro :: The Gate – Angel

    Sometimes, we take it for granted when we live close to our friends! The regular meet ups, popping over to each other’s houses and going for that cup of tea. But when they move away to a different area, then it makes us realise how much we miss those casual get togethers. After a couple of months of not seeing my close friend, we thought that it’s best to put a date in the diary and go out for lunch. The vegetarian restaurant, The Gate, was chosen! The Gate is on the same location that used to be Med Kitchen, before it closed down...
