What a relief it is to escape the madding crowd of the Galleria area and cross the threshold of this decades-old former farmhouse, where natural lighting and the deep tones of hunter green and burgundy lend a sense of clubby calm. The pick of the dinner menu is the signature veal chop, an astonishing 18-ounce, two-inch-thick cut suitable for Henry VIII. Desserts are also large and luscious. Oh, what the heck. Crapitto's just isn't a place to diet. It's an urban retreat.
