The restaurant is named after the fire god Eate, who was worshipped by the ancient Basques. This should give you some idea of the restaurant’s focus – that is, grilled and spit-roasted meat.
The Eate space is modern and light, with industrial beams and gleaming white subway tiles. Large leather banquettes and metal and wooden tables complete the look.
On the menu there is charcoal chicken; spit-roasted lamb; a range of burgers (including a vegetarian option); yiros; and fish. The Peary Peary chicken burger includes the house HEMonaise (Hot English Mustard mayonnaise). Sides include seasonal steamed vegetables; fried cauliflower; and sautéed new potatoes.
The Eate also serves coffee, pastries, milkshakes, protein shakes and a range of desserts. The strawberry, watermelon, lavender soda is an unusual and refreshing example of the house-soda combinations.
