Cabaret Falafel: stars flock to support West End institution Gaby’s Deli

Posted at 1:00 pm, December 8, 2011 in News

Gaby's Deli © Rob Greig West End snack institution Gaby’s Deli ­which first opened its doors is 1965 ­is due to be evicted from its premises next year after landlords Gascoyne Holdings secured permission to replace the beloved eatery with some sort of godawful chain restaurant. In a sign of stars’ affection for Gaby’s, a series of free awareness-raising events are being staged at the restaurant, entitled ‘Cabaret Falafel’. The first event is this Thursday at 5.45pm, with the acclaimed actor Henry Goodman performing a specially written satirical song; the following Friday juggling comic Mat Ricardo will give a performance; and in January we’re promised a reading from Simon Callow and a special short play written by Roma Tearne, starring Kate Fahy. In Simon’s words: ‘Gaby’s is everything that a West End snackeria should be – tasty, individual, fast, fun. I have been eating there since it opened. Easy, friendly, lively, sometimes a bit crazy – a great West End institution. Gaby’s must not go.’ We couldn’t agree more.
