What better way to escape the hustle and bustle of New York than going back in time more than a hundred years? Indeed, go back to an age when your iPhone wasn’t always buzzing with phone calls and text messages and you did not turn to Facebook to see what your friends were up to. The journey there may be easier than you think. Simply take a step into Delmonico’s, the famed fine-dining steakhouse in the heart of New York’s Financial District.
The first American eatery to be called a “restaurant,” the first to use printed menus and tablecloths and the first to seat diners at individual tables, Delmonico’s brings New York City food lovers back to where the industry all began. Standing proudly after more than 180 years in business, Delmonico’s is “America’s Oldest Restaurant” and undoubtedly one of its best. Enjoy Eggs Benedict? Well, Delmonico’s invented it along with a host of other iconic dishes, including Lobster Newberg and Chicken a la Keene. Be sure to drop by for the world-renowned Delmonico Steak or, one of our favorites, the Seared Alaskan Halibut. Chef William Oliva and his team will have you wishing the meal would never end.
As one recent reviewer on Yelp put it, “Anyone with a sense of culinary history can’t help being in awe of Delmonico’s.”
Above is just one of our favorite dishes - the perfect way to end a legendary meal: Classic Baked Alaska, made with Walnut Cake, Apricot Jam, Banana Gelato and Meringue!
