Restaurant Report: Celebrated chef Jonathan Gushue opens ‘The Gate’

December 8, 2023

Grey County, Ontario is home to another new restaurant; plus, filling a void in Ottawa

Jonathan Gushue’s much-anticipated new restaurant venture officially opened 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.
