Gabriel’s Bar & Restaurant — 11 West 60th Street

Gabriel Aiello wanted to open a restaurant that would serve “peasant-casual” Italian food with no frills, in contrast to the high-end, ornamental dishes concocted by many of the surrounding restaurants. He aimed for “elegant, efficient, and not too expensive,” a formula that seems to have worked. He describes himself as a “one man band,” able to fill any role in his restaurant at the drop of a hat. He is proud, however, of the strong team that works alongside him. Nine of his employees have been at Gabriel’s since day one when they opened in 1992.
