Dearest Gate House Guests,
As you may have heard, we will be expanding this spring! We have seen you, our valuable customers, very patiently waiting too long for a table, or eating at the bar because they were the only seats available, or leaving because you didn’t have time to wait. We want to correct that for you, but we don’t want to leave the Village Gate that we love so much. We want you to be able to walk in, with parties of all sizes, and be accommodated as quickly and efficiently as possible.
And so to correct that, we are expanding the space to accommodate you all, while regaining our private party room that we recently gave up across the hall. The space directly next door that is now Espada, will be renovating very soon to become the new Gate House. We will stay in this location as long as we need to as Espada remodels, have a brief closing while we transition, and hopefully open by late spring/early summer.
This space has been amazing, cozy and comfortable. It’s also loud, too small, a little cramped in the bar area, and everyone hates the tables near the kitchen. In the new space, look for more space for cocktailing, a separation between the bar and the dining room, and a gorgeous setting that will emulate the Gate House feel, and have subtle relics of Gate House days gone by. We are excited to transform the Gate House’s current space into something different, and there will be more information on that soon to come.
Thank you most of all for your continued support, it’s you, our customers, who brought us to this point of expansion. Please be patient with us during this transition, and continue to visit us until we’ve made the move, and beyond that.
With Sincerest Gratitude,
Kristen and Mike
