Gates and Brovi restaurant serves good burgers, seafood

John Gadau and Phillip Hurley's latest endeavor combines many of the attributes that made Marigold Kitchen and Sardine winners. Food is bright and appealing; service competent and welcoming. The limited menu clearly targets parochial predilections, with cheese curds, burgers, wedge salads and Friday fish fry. But there’s a dinner-on-the-shore déjà vu, too, with clam chowder, oysters on the half shell, beer-steamed shrimp and whole Maine lobster. Utilitarian but comfy, Gates & Brovi appropriately conveys a clam shack feel. The aim is to be a neighborhood rendezvous, but it’s sure to draw those from the hinterlands to the near west side.
