Carmine’s Italian Restaurant Brings Old School Charm to McGregor Square

“As the city begins to blossom back to life, there may be no better symbol of the renewed energy than McGregor Square… the whole complex was recently joined by a cornerstone with more than enough clout and quality to tie the location together. Carmine’s Italian Restaurant — a genuine staple of the Wash Park neighborhood for nearly three decades running — opened its second iteration downtown on June 15, offering the same family-style dining that made the original so wildly popular.

First Look: Carmine’s on McGregor Square Delivers Comfort in the Chaos

What we saw: The decor is lighter than at the original Carmine’s on Penn, which has been serving Italian food and wine on South Pennsylvania Avenue since 1994. That was intentional, according to owner Brad Ritter, who purchased Carmine’s on Penn in 2006 and chose McGregor Square for its first expansion.

‘For years, so many people would say, You need to open a Carmine’s in my neighborhood,’ he explains. While he considered other possibilities, it wasn’t until he was approached about this Colorado Rockies development that he decided to add a second Carmine’s. ‘How could you say no to this opportunity?’ he asks.”

We’re Opening a New Location!

We are proud to announce an expansion opportunity to the Ballpark area of downtown Denver: “Carmine’s on McGregor Square!” We are honored to have been chosen to join this stunning property adjacent to Coors Field. Our neighbors in this project will be various retail establishments, office spaces, a hotel, condominiums, a food hall, sports bar and Denver’s local, American Italian immigrant family style restaurant, Carmine’s! We will be serving lunch and dinner seven days a week. Lunch will focus on individual portions of pastas, a selection of Little Carmine’s menu of sandwiches, salads, soup and sides. For dinner, you can expect your favorite menu items enjoyed over the years with some new additions. Carmine’s on McGregor Square joins the original Carmine’s on Penn (now celebrating 27 years in business) offering made to order, food to share in portions for two people or family size. Projected opening date on McGregor Square is slated for early May 2021.

Carmines at Home

Scenario #1: You get home from work. Open the fridge. Last week’s leftovers staring you in the face. You just changed clothes and are not interested in going grocery shopping or even going out to grab a bite.

Scenario #2: You have friends visiting unexpectedly and you want to entertain, relax and chat in the comfort of your own home and there’s no time to go food shopping.

Introducing “Carmine’s at Home”. Think picking up a quart of house made marinara, box of dried pasta, Carmine’s proprietary grated Italian cheese blend, salad dressings or even a sandwich roll to toast in the oven, slathered with garlic and butter. A slice of Carmine’s cheesecake or cannolis for dessert. All that’s needed to complete the meal is a pot of water to cook the pasta and you’ve got yourself an easy, delicious and hassle free dinner.

You’ll find other signature items to enjoy at home: Bolognese sauce, Carmine’s house made salad dressings, quarts of smoked chicken salad from Little Carmine’s, olives, pepperoncini peppers, single servings of Carmine’s house, Caesar or Pear Salads, bottles of olive oil and balsamic vinegar to name a few. Carmine’s at Home items available next door in the cooler at Little Carmine’s Italian Sandwich Shop 11am-7pm Tuesdays-Sundays.

Carmine’s Explores the World of Spanish Wine

What happens when you take the time to fill out a 30-minute survey? Sometimes you win a trip to Spain! At least that was the case for Carmine’s on Penn Manager, Stephen Kozicki. After filling out a survey about Carmine’s wine program for Wine & Spirits magazine, Stephen was selected as one of the lucky winners. He’ll spend six days enjoying the best food and wine Spain has to offer. Check out his itinerary for a snapshot of what he’ll be up to:

 

Day 1:

 

Day 2:

  • Tour of Segovia: Segovia is a historic city northwest of Madrid, on the way to the wine regions of Ribera del Duero and Rueda.
  • Food: Lunch at the historic Mesón de Cándido. Located at an inn built in 1884, this famous restaurant is well known for their suckling pig.
  • Wine: Tasting at Rueda Consejo with an introduction to the wines of the region.

 

Day 3:

 

Day 4:

 

Day 5:

 

Day 6:

  • Wine: Ribera del Duero tastings at Bodegas Arzuaga Navarro and Real Sitio de Ventosilla. Guests will also enjoy a vintage wine tasting from historical wineries in the region, with wine dating back to 1985.
  • Hot air balloon ride through the vineyards of “the Golden Mile” of Ribera del Duero.
  • Food: Guests can cook dinner with the winemakers at Bodegas Neo (the only winery in the world with a music studio) before enjoying music and a picnic dinner.

 

Carmine’s on Penn might offer an exclusive 100% Italian wine list, but here’s to tasting some Spanish wines too! We look forward to hearing all about Stephen’s experience when he gets back.
