Delmonico’s Introduces House Historian

Because Nothing Goes Better with Steak Than a Side of NYC History

New York City’s legendary 182-year old landmark, Delmonico’s is excited to announce yet another restaurant ‘first’ with the appointment of acclaimed New York City Historian Kevin Draper as its new dedicated House Historian.

Starting on Tuesday, November 19th (12:30pm – 2:30pm), and each third Tuesday of the month thereafter, Delmonico’s House Historian Kevin Draper will offer interested guests an exciting chance to explore Delmonico’s rich history—from its famous original dishes and culinary ‘firsts,’ to lesser known fun facts. A highly-sought New York City Historian known for his dynamic knowledge and gift for bringing NYC’s incredible history to life, Kevin will be available to share the story of Delmonico’s unmatched history as NYC’s most prolific culinary trailblazer, and even provide guests with a complimentary table side chat and tour.


Kevin can also be booked for private dining events, where he can offer event guests an even deeper dive into Delmonico’s nearly two centuries of history as America’s first restaurant—and further enhance your guests inside NYC’s most iconic living culinary museum, which continues to endure with its world-renowned cuisine and gilded age ambience. Now offered exclusively at Delmonico’s this is one of a kind offering that will make your event truly go down in history!

To Our Valued Guests,

As of March 18th, Delmonico’s has temporarily suspended all operations. Our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our staff and guests. These unparalleled times have led to the temporary closing of our restaurant.

It is with much sadness that all events and restaurant reservations have been canceled for the coming weeks. When we are permitted to reopen and our team is back on-premise, we will contact you concerning your reservations and special events.

Throughout our 183-year history, Delmonico’s has endured many challenges. Our perseverance and resilience will continue as we navigate this unprecedented moment in history.

With Gratitude, The Delmonico’s Team
