Vegetarians can sometimes get the raw end of the carrot stick when it comes to brunch, which can be pretty focused on stuff like sausages and bacon. Cause to celebrate then, that London veggie institution The Gate is bringing its award-winning blend of Indo-Iraqi Jewish cuisine to Marylebone. And yes - they’ll be open for breakfast.
It’s a nicely imaginative selection - scrambled tofu with smoky shiitake mushrooms, bagels with avocado and organic poached eggs, spinach omelette with sunflower seeds, or potted chia with banana, halva and pecans will be on offer.
For those arriving later in the day, there’ll be plenty of familiar dishes on offer at Seymour Place, such as their aubergine teriyaki with crispy noodles, or Green Dragon tofu salad with pak choi and sweet potato. There’ll also be some new dishes on offer, like the three-way filled globe artichoke and the wild mushroom rotolo, a cannelloni-esque stuffed pasta.
There’ll be a selection of interesting cocktails too, including a festive quince and vanilla margarita, while wines will be sourced only from sustainable vineyards, from New Zealand to East Sussex. For those who aren’t drinking or just on more of a health kick, expect plenty of fresh juices and mocktails.
“We’re excited to be bringing our vegetarian dining to even more people, in Central London and in particular in Seymour Place among many fellow independents and in a venue which affords us a bigger stage for our inventive and carefully-honed cooking,” said co-founder Michael Daniel.
The Gate opens on 1 December 2016 at 22-24 Seymour Place, London W1H 7NL. It’ll be open Monday - Thursday 8am - 10.30pm, Friday 8am-10.30pm, Saturday 9am-11pm, Sunday 9am-9pm. Follow The Gate on Twitter @gaterestaurant
