Galli, which means rooster in Italian, opened in SoHo in August by Steve Gallo of Brio Downtown, and Michael Forrest. The menu offers classic Italian comfort food, like veal milanese, paired with cocktails made with house-made liquor and syrups. Designed by Gallo's creative consultant wife, Karen Gallo, the space wows with high ceilings, exposed brick walls, black and white marble tile, and a welcoming pink neon sign that reads, "This Way." The semipivate, 400-square-feet solarium holds 50 for private events.
