Review: Delmonico's Restaurant in New York City

List: Posted: 03/05/12

When planning a trip to New York City, it can be a whirlwind trying to organize what you want to visit and see.  However, one of the must-see destinations in the city is actually a restaurant

 

Delmonico's is more than just a tourist attraction - it's a landmark in The Big Apple. During the early 19th century, the Delmonico family opened Delmonico's in New York.  This eatery quickly became an area landmark, and was one of the first "fine dining" restaurants in the nation.

 

Delmonico's was the first restaurant to give their patrons a choice from a menu, rather than serving a set meal, and they were also the first to offer a separate wine list.

 

Delmonico's was also the location where several well-known meals were invented, such as Lobster a la Newberg, Delmonico steak and Eggs Benedict.  Many notable patrons have dined at Delmonico's in its long history, including the likes of Napoleon III, Edward VII, Nikola Tesla, J.P. Morgan, Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain and Lillian Russell.

 

Delmonico's underwent several different iterations over time, with the most famous being the Delmonico's builder at 2 South William Street.  Delmonico's has also been located on Broad Street, Broadway, East 14th Street, and Fifth Avenue.  Today, Delmonico's is no longer owned by the Delmonico family, but still remains an important institution in the city.
