Delmonico's Steakhouse has been around for almost 200 years. It's considered to be one of, if not THE, first fine dining restaurants. They also tout being the first to serve several dishes including the Delmonico Steak, Oyster Rockefeller, Lobster Newburg, Baked Alaska, and more. It was finally time for me to try this renowned restaurant.
Delmonico's is still a very old school feeling establishment. With dark wood, chandeliers, and oil paintings on the wall, I felt like stepping into a museum.
I think the aura of the place sits well with what they stand for which is good classic food without all the fuss. But they stand behind the mannerisms that makes places a fine dining destination.
