Fodor's Expert Review Delmonico's
The oldest continually operating restaurant in New York City (since 1837), elegant Delmonico's is steeped in history. It was Manhattan's first fine-dining establishment, with an inventive 19th-century chef de cuisine whose most famous dishes, including eggs Benedict, lobster Newburg, and Baked Alaska, are still served. The stately dining room is clad in Victorian decor that instantly transports diners to another era. The classic atmosphere complements menu highlights like the signature Delmonico's steak, a boneless rib eye topped with frizzled onions, and a selection of other dry- and wet-aged steaks. The creamed spinach and Delmonico potatoes are sure to please. In addition to the main dining room, the triangular building offers a separate bar and grill with a more contemporary lunch/dinner menu (entrance on Beaver Street); as well as private dining on multiple floors. Reservations are recommended.
