Adrian and Michael Daniel have been running London’s most successful vegetarian restaurant since 1989.
"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, 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 started with passion and creativity and we maintain that passion and creativity today."
Our original restaurant in Hammersmith is located in what was once the studio of artist Sir Frank Brangwyn, next to the Hammersmith Apollo, and is still looking great after our recent facelift! It is now widely recognised as one of the best vegetarian restaurants in London, both a much-loved institution with a loyal and devoted following and a restaurant which has been quietly and confidently promoting healthy eating for almost 3 decades.
