Delmonico’s, the country’s first fine dining restaurant, has expanded its premier location at 56 Beaver Street to Midtown Manhattan. But be warned, this is not your father’s Delmonico’s! Prepare to be dazzled with its chic, modern interior and casual vibe. Just steps from Madison Square Garden, Shopping, and Broadway Theater, this contemporary spin-off boasts a sleek marble bar, deep red leather banquettes, and candlelit tables. Perfect for a drink after work or dinner before the big game! The décor is clean and comfortable with well spaced tables. There are shiny wood floors and warm, flattering lighting. Service is attentive, without push and food equals the best steak houses in New York.

Delmonico’s Kitchen brings a globally inspired, seasonal approach to dining, using organic and local ingredients to create savory twists to some of the legendary dishes, such as the Delmonico Steak, Eggs Benedict and Baked Alaska. Separating itself from other traditional steakhouses, the new Delmonico’s Kitchen will surely entice guests to sample its modern take on legendary classics as well as tempt  with numerous new creations.

As the sequel to the Original Delmonico’s, Delmonico’s Kitchen emerges as the new kid on the block in the heart of Midtown for special events and private dining. The banquet rooms, sleek bar, and Main Dining room are just steps from Broadway Theater, Penn Station and Madison Square Garden, making it the ideal location for corporate gatherings or special celebrations.

Classic Dishes

Delmonico's K Starter2

Perfect starters for the table include a sparkling, fresh Citadel Tower (½ lobster, 2 west coast oysters, 2 east coast oysters, 2 shrimp, crab, tuna tartar) or for a larger party, Delmonico’s Tower (1 lobster, 4 shrimp, 4 west coast oysters, 4 east coast oysters, crab, tuna tartar),  Absolutely delicious.

While the Delmonico Steak, Vintage All Natural Angus Boneless Rib Eye, (below) is nonpareil with its accompanying fried onion rings, there may be an off-the-menu-T-bone or “Butcher’s Pick” that is terrific and the Veal Chop is as good as it gets. For something a bit more traditional, try the Lobster Newburg 1837 sauce a la wenberg and caviar crème (which can also be ordered as a starter).  All sides are standouts, include a crackling round of Hash Browns and an out of the ordinary Creamed Spinach, with the unexpected addition of cheese. An order of Wild Mushroom Risotto was wonderful.

The award winning wine list offers an international selection of some 22 pages,, organized by country and region and fairly priced. There are many by the glass, ranging from $11 to $18. Look to California and Italy for some good values by the bottle.

Delmonico’s may be the only steak house in Manhattan where desserts are mandatory. Favorites include delicious Boston Creme Beignets vanilla custard and hot fudge; Banana Cake Sundae with cinnamon toffee brown butter and pecan ice cream;Chocolate-Hazelnut Mousse  with salted caramel and, coconut sherbet
ad an adorable take on Baked Alaska, using miniature Ice Cream Cones.

Managing Partner Dennis Turcinovic oversees service that is prompt, efficient and never overbearing. Delmonico’s Kitchen is discovered, so reserve.

One of New York’s best steak houses. Walman Report Rating: A Major
