The oldest restaurant in New York and the first restaurant in America. Delmonico’s was opened in 1827 by a sea-captain Giovanni Del Monico and his brother Pietro. Delmonico’s is steeped in cultural, political and culinary history. The portico-pillared Pompeii-like structure has been restored to proudly display its origins. Dine under original chandeliers and photos of old-time socialites. Eggs Benedict, lobster Newburg and baked Alaska were all invented here. Inside the stately yet informal mahogany-paneled dining room, enjoy a 20-ounce boneless rib-eye steak smothered with onions – don’t forget to add creamed spinach on the side.
