Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Colorado Boulevard, Gale's has the feel of a casual New York loft, with exposed brick walls and an unfinished ceiling. Tantalizing aromas waft from the open kitchen, where chefs busily prepare dishes like made-to-order pizzas, rosemary lamb chops and homemade raviolis. For calorie-conscious eaters, there's a spa menu offering lighter fare like a poached salmon salad at lunchtime. The crowd is quiet and so is the Italian music.
