Il Terrazzo Carmine, owned and operated by Carmine Smeraldo, is one of Seattle's true dining anomalies - a highly successful restaurant with unfailingly high standards and a loyal, sophisticated clientele. The cuisine has been acclaimed as Seattle's best by the media and more importantly, by local diners. <br />Il Terrazzo Carmine is located in historic Pioneer Square - nestled in an urban-renewed alley with entrances through the vintage lobby on First Avenue or through the delightful courtyard in the back. Since 1984, Carmine Smeraldo's classic Italian restaurant has been where the locals have chosen to return over and over again. From the Carpaccio Di Bue and Spaghettini Dell 'Ortolano for lunch to the Suprema Di Pollo Farcita and Zuppa Di Pesce for dinner you will know you have gone to a place where excellence is a way of life. Arguably the best Italian restaurant in Seattle, Il Terrazzo serves classical Italian cuisine with an atmosphere you may want to call home and never leave

"This is one of our favorite restaurants. George and the rest of the long-time staff have done a superlative job maintaining the excellence of this restaurant despite the passing of Carmine. Bravo!"

Housed in Ketchum's oldest remaining home, the Ketchum Grill has been serving up fresh and sustainable cuisine for nearly 23 years.<br /><br />Let Chef/Owners Scott and Anne Mason be your guides for dinner in the mountains of Central Idaho. <br />All of our meals are made fresh to order and our home-baked breads and desserts are the stuff of legends. <br /><br />Our award winning wine list has over 150 selections and many of the Northwest’s and California’s finest wineries are represented. We have an excellent choice of micro brews and an ever changing menu of wines by the glass. <br /><br />Please join us for dinner nightly beginning at 5:00 pm.<br /><br />Our patio dining is "first come first served".<br />We can not accept outdoor reservations

"We spend at least 4 weeks a year in Sun Valley. During that time, we eat at Ketchum Grill as often as possible. It's just excellent: cozy, warm, cabin-ish atmosphere; friendly, engaging service, wonderful food and wine. Love it!"

Altura Restaurant brings the seasonal emphasis of Italian cooking to the bounty of the Northwest with artisan technique. Guests enjoy the elegance of the freshest ingredients, simply prepared and perfectly presented. Chef Lockwood crafts his weekly-changing menu to celebrate the best, most seasonal products available, highlighting Northwest produce and foraged items where appropriate, as well as specialty Italian ingredients.<br /><br />Similarly, the 80-bottle wine list strives to combine highlights from the Northwest with Old World selections from small producers in a range of styles. Wine Director Guy Kugel has hand-selected each label, and will pair wine flights, glasses, or bottles to suit the desires of each guest.<br /><br />Altura encourages its guests to dine in the Italian style by providing a tasting menu coursed dinner format, whereby the guest chooses selections from three, four, or five course sections, or opt for our 7-course Chef's Tasting Menu.
