While it's squashed into a small mall overlooking a parking lot, the interior feel of Arugula is gracious, modern and warm - and the Northern Italian food turned out by chef/owner Alec Schuler has the same contemporary hominess. The seasonal menu features farm-to-table ingredients, many of them locally sourced; the roster is rich with such rustic pleasures as Colorado lamb and sirloin stew, black-pepper-rubbed pork tenderloin, and seared scallops with a strawberry risotto. The pastas and gnocchi, available in half or full portions, are equally impressive. And the eclectic wine list, which reaches far and wide, is full of fine picks.
