Il Terrazzo Carmine

Editor’s Pick

$$$ Italian

Nothing trendy about this timeless landmark, where Carmine Smeraldo has been serving sumptuous Italian classics for over two decades. If pressed, the establishment regulars will praise the peerless osso buco, the garlicky rack of lamb, the noble cioppino—but nobody wants to cultivate competition for their favorite tables. Which, incidentally, are formally sheathed in white and arrayed handsomely in a windowed room, with a courtyard off the back for urban (um, loud) summer dining.
