The new menu features dishes such as Myung Ran Cesar Salad (Little Gem, Parmesan, White Anchovies, Chives, Creamy Myung Dressing); and Sea Urchin & Abalone Risotto (Koshihikari Rice, Abalone Liver Sauce, Nori, Crispy Shitake, Shaved Frozen Oysters). To celebrate and honor the restaurant’s culinary heritage, Hong will also offer incarnations of American classics that Delmonico’s is known for including its Baked Alaska, Lobster Newberg, Chicken a la Keene, and of course, the Delmonico Steak (18 oz Brandt Beef). The restaurant will also feature a 14 oz Prime Dry-Aged Bone-In Ribeye topped with Uni Butter.
The historic establishment also welcomes Max Tucci, a TV personality, best-selling author, and culinary professional, as its global brand ambassador. Tucci's grandfather was one of the owners who opened Delmonico’s after Prohibition in the 1920s. His family operated the restaurant for over 60 years, and now Tucci will oversee and support the restaurant’s guest experience. Tucci is also the author of the cookbook, "The Delmonico Way; Sublime Entertaining and Legendary Recipes from the Restaurant that Made New York!"
Dennis Turcinovic, owner and operator of Delmonico’s Restaurant Group, and his partner Joseph Licul signed a 15-year lease for the building after its previous agreement expired at the end of 2022. Turcinovic has been involved with the renowned restaurant since 1999, and is an industry veteran with more than 25 years experience in hospitality.
With five newly renovated private dining areas, Delmonico's can now accommodate seating up to 500 guests.
“Delmonico's is a restaurant with deep-rooted history," Turcinovic shared. "It was the first to use the term restaurant, the first to have a cookbook, and the first to serve women sitting at their own table. It is a part of New York City’s restaurant legacy and we are excited to welcome back returning guests, but also introduce Delmonico’s to a new generation of New York City diners."
