Open since 1923, Iron Gate remained the city’s oldest continuously operating restaurant until its closing. In 2013, Neighborhood Restaurant group and chef Anthony Chittum revitalized the space and restored the dining room, the wisteria-covered courtyard and the carriageway bar. The menu was just revamped by the Greek and Italian focus remain. Chittum says he wants Iron Gate to capture the spirit of Greek dining, which his Greek wife first introduced him to.
