Plant-based restaurant brand The Gate is to open a new venue in St John’s Wood, following the success of its sites in Marylebone, Islington and Hammersmith.

Founded in 1989 by brothers Adrian and Michael Daniel, serving what they describe as ‘Indo-Iraqi Jewish’ cuisine, The Gate’s menu is entirely vegetarian and vegan.

The St John’s Wood restaurant will open in a 3,270 square foot space on Allitsen Road, on the site formerly occupied by New York-style deli Delisserie.

Renowned for their vegan brunches, The Gate’s menu features dishes such as miso-glazed aubergine topped with toasted cashew nuts, micro coriander and ponzu sauce; a green dragon smoked tofu salad with teriyaki and sesame dressing; and an artichoke terrine with homemade sun-dried tomato and basil salsa, with desserts including a pecan and pear Eton mess with vegan meringue. New editions to the menu are yet to be unveiled.

The restaurant will offer a fixed price lunch, a vegan weekend brunch and a menu for children.

As with The Gate’s other sites, the wine list will be solely vegan, featuring a choice of wines from across the globe.

The founders said: “We are extremely happy to be opening up our fourth site. St John’s Wood is a top location and we are a stone’s throw from some other great restaurants in the area. The size of the unit is also brilliant, allowing us to do many different things with the space.”

The Gate in St John’s Wood opens in April.
