Delmonico's Restaurant, the original, opened its doors to Manhattanites in 1827, bringing to the city's dining scene many firsts. The eatery offered the first private dining rooms, and the first baked alaska and steakburgers to enjoy therein. It has, according to the Wall Street Journal, remained an eatery favored by executives and traders looking for a bit of red meat between workdays. It's smaller cousin, Delmonico's Kitchen, provides similar dishes for a more casual crowd in Midtown.
Delmonico's Kitchen's chefs prepare plenty of the same classics to be found at their parent restaurant, including the 40-ounce vintage porterhouse steak for two or the DK Double Burger, a slight re-imagining of the original 1834 steak burger. The main difference between the two locations, in fact, lies more in preparation. The Kitchen sources its food from local growers and organic farms, using the seasonality of ingredients to add some unexpected twists to classic Delmonico's dishes.
