The 86-cover restaurant The Gate Seymour Place will be the company's third London site, following Hammersmith and Islington.
Owners and brothers Michael and Adrian Daniel have worked with the group's head of food Yossi Edri to create new dishes such as three-way filled globe artichoke, aubergine schnitzel, and wild mushroom rotolo for the third site which will be served alongside established favourites such as aubergine teriyaki and tofu-based salad green dragon.
The new site, which opens on 1 December, will also be the first of The Gate restaurants to open for breakfast, with the menu to include scrambled tofu with smoky shiitake mushroom; toasted bagel with fresh avocado and organic poached eggs; eand potted chia banana and dates, with halva and sweet pecans.
Michael Daniel said: “The launch of The Gate Seymour Place marks an important step in the life of our family business. I feel the time is right to bring our take on vegetarian dining to even more people and we’re excited to be doing so 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.”
The Gate first opened in Hammersmith in 1989 after the Daniel brothers, who have an Indo-Iraqi heritage, wanted to recreate the diverse flavours and culinary experiences they had enjoyed as children.
The restaurant gained a loyal following among vegetarians and non-vegetarians and Michael Daniel decided to open a second branch in Islington in 2012 as the original closed for refurbishment. The Gate Hammersmith re-opened in 2014.
