New York – Delmonico’s, heralded as America’s first restaurant, has emerged triumphant from the challenges posed by the pandemic, showcasing not only renovations but also an unexpected twist – race car representation.
After a brief hiatus, the iconic chop house has reopened its doors. The revival was marked by an exclusive preview for friends and family. The event saw the refurbished dining room brimming with enthusiastic guests, relishing sumptuous steaks, crispy fries, and sipping on refreshing drinks, including the Vinho Verde wine from Portugal.
A significant change is the introduction of a new chef, infusing a fresh culinary perspective into the restaurant. In addition, the dining room flaunts new upholstery, adding a touch of modernity while preserving its classic charm.
Tucci, the grandson of Oscar Tucci who breathed new life into Delmonico’s in the 1920s post-Prohibition, passionately stated, “Nothing can keep Delmonico’s closed.”
The restaurant’s legacy continues with offerings like their signature steak, the new tuna tagliatelle priced at $27, and the iconic Baked Alaska. Additionally, patrons can relish their meals in the newly renovated main dining room or enjoy a drink at the handsome adjacent bar area.
Located on Beaver Street, Delmonico’s continues to be a beacon of culinary excellence, embracing its history while forging a path into the future. The establishment shines not only in daylight but also offers a unique ambiance by night.
