Even as a child, legendary New York City restaurateur Gabriel Aiello was drawn to the energy of the restaurant business. Now a beloved institution known for its atmosphere, his family-owned Gabriel’s Bar and Restaurant serves handmade pasta to New York visitors, residents and luminaries alike. When Gabriel joined First Republic, he found an enthusiastic team who knew his business and had his back. The Bank’s culture of service resonates strongly with Gabriel, and his team was instrumental in his restaurant’s much-anticipated 2021 reopening. With First Republic by his side, Gabriel is able to keep doing what he loves most: feeding people great food — and lots of it.
