Glen Baker and David Grafke picked up the lease on a circa-1886 building on West 32nd in Highland and turned it into Gallop Cafe back in 2004, before the block became a hotbed of trendier -- and, dare we say it, bougier -- concepts. They wanted to create a cafe with an old-world feel, a community gathering spot that would attract regulars for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks, and they gave the interior of the space a decidedly casual, neighborly feel. Despite the large windows that line two walls, the place is perpetually dark, lined with a chocolate-hued bar and littered with tables that have a careworn, coffee-shop feel. The chalkboard list of drinks -- a big draw here -- is supplemented by laminated menus outlining bistro fare that draws crowds of regulars craving lazy meals of wholesome, hearty food. And for anyone needing a hangover cure, Gallop also serves up a wicked Bloody Mary.
