Intermezzo Carmine

Carmine Smeraldo is no longer with us, but his family still runs the fancy bastion of Italian food Il Terrazzo Carmine in Pioneer Square. Intermezzo Carmine next door has craft cocktails and small plates. "We see it as a portal, one that will open our brand up to the next generation of Seattle diners," says son CJ Smeraldo by way of whetting your appetite. Juan Vega began working for Carmine in 1994; he became executive chef of Il Terrazzo a couple years before Intermezzo opened, and is in charge of both kitchens.
