DELMONICO'S: OLDEST RESTAURANT IN THE UNITED STATES.

August 22, 2016.

Delmonico’s, located in the Financial District, is said to be the first fine-dining restaurant to open in America. The Delmonico brothers opened its doors in 1837, and started selling pastries, fine coffee, cigars, and liquor. Today, at the same location: the intersection of Beaver, William and South William Streets, it is mostly known for its signature Delmonico steak.
