Delmonico’s review image



56 Beaver St, New York

Delmonico’s opened in 1837, which was the same year that Michigan became the 26th state to join the union. That’s in no way relevant other than to illustrate that this place has been around for a really long time. The white curtains and tablecloths, chandeliers, giant paintings on the walls still make it feel like it could exist in another century, and if you want to get a sense for what people ate back then, come for the $45 prix-fixe lunch. Start with eggs benedict, and then get the Delmonico steak or lobster Newberg, and finish things off with the baked Alaska. Every one of those dishes was invented by the original chef at Delmonico’s. At dinner, get the Delmonico steak (a boneless ribeye), or one of the dry-aged options, like the porterhouse with bernaise or foie gras butter. This place is still a good place to impress out-of-towners, whether lunch with clients or dinner with midwestern cousins visiting the city for the first time.
