Description - Dining at Delmonico's by Judith Choate

The name Delmonico s is synonymous with fine dining. Ever since the establishmentthe country s first real restaurantopened its doors in Manhattan s Financial District in 1837, Delmonico s has been showing Americans just what it means to eat well. Delmonico s was where American diners were introduced to some of our most beloved dishes: Lobster a la Newburg, Eggs Benedict, Manhattan Clam Chowder, Baked Alaska. Many were created in Delmonico s kitchen by New York s first star chef, Charles Ranhofer; others were popularized here. And always heading the bill of fare was the Delmonico s Steakan unbelievably succulent 20-ounce prime rib-eye, grilled to perfection and topped with herbed butterwhich remains the gold standard that other steakhouses try to emulate.Delmonico s history is one of firsts: the first American restaurant to use tablecloths, to offer private dining rooms, to furnish a separate wine list, to admit women diners, and to re-envision haute cuisine for the American palate. That tradition of exquisite food served in a luxurious setting continues to flourish today. Now, Dining at Delmonico s invites the home cook into the restaurant s legendary kitchen, providing more than 80 recipes that let you re-create the gastronomic glories of Delmonico s dining room for your own table."
