The Gate Islington

This vegetarian restaurant serving "Indo-Iraqi Jewish" food is already popular in Hammersmith and has now come to Islington, just around the corner from Sadlers Wells theatre. Expect a menu that changes monthly with several signature dishes and plenty of organic wine.

"The Gate manages to avoid all the clichés of vegetarian eating: soggy, passive-aggressive Quorn; nut roasts; faux bangers of woe. Refreshingly, it doesn’t bother trying to make anything that apes meat, which makes sense if you don’t want to eat it in the first place."
