For a quarter of a century, Adrian and Michael Daniel have been serving London’s finest and most innovative vegetarian meals. Their restaurant The Gate in Hammersmith spawned a legacy for another wonderful place in Islington. And the brothers follow traditional cooking that they grew up with: blending Indian and Arabic cuisines, adding Jewish flavours and spices and methods of preparation. The Gate in Hammersmith is a celebration of everything that’s tasty and rich in natural flavours – by employing carefully sourced ingredients and showing great affection for every food item The Gate will surprise you in many pleasant and unexpected ways.
See, your grandmother was right all along: First and foremost you’ll need a certain amount of love and affection for the dishes you prepare – everything else will follow. By blending and combining foods from many different culinary backgrounds, Adrian and Michael Daniel succeed in giving each and every vegetarian meal that certain je ne sais quoi that makes The Gate in Hammersmith so very, very unique. Here, Arabic and Middle East meals meet Jewish cuisine, add to that a certain amount of Italian and French influences, and there you have it: London’s top spot to find out about the many pleasures of fine vegetarian dining.
Try feta and cous cous fritters for some authentic Mediterranean taste, or go for smoked tofu and spring mint vegetable roll served with a sweet and sour dipping sauce and pickled pink ginger. Teriyaki aubergine. Caesar Salad. Curious? We thought so. There seems to be nothing the Daniel brothers cannot do. The Gate in Hammersmith is an absolute gem, and it delights us to see that they’ve been successful at creating their own version of culinary excellence for a quarter of a century. Here’s to the next 25 years of innovative healthy food.
