The much-anticipated opening of Jonathan Gushue’s newest restaurant venture is officially set for December 10. Food-and-beverage partners Jennifer Belanger and Phil De Montbrun are also involved.
Located in Flesherton, Ontario, within the natural beauty and agricultural bounty of Grey County, The Gate is fittingly “the gateway to Grey Highlands,” a natural area of waterfalls, the Bruce Trail, Osprey Bluffs and the Saugeen and Beaver rivers.
And now, it’s open for more good food. The Gate is a 40-seat, open-concept casual Mediterranean restaurant within a 150-year-old building; the ancient, exposed brick is a backdrop to a view into the small kitchen and the “personality” that will drive big energy, according to principal Jennifer Belanger.
“The kitchen is inspiring,” she says. “When you come in the door, you’ll feel the vibe of the chefs.”
