A Manhattan staple since its inception in 1867, Delmonico’s is a famous steakhouse designed with the epitome of luxury in mind — white tablecloths adorn each carefully placed table, crystal chandeliers hang from the expansive ceiling, and period-piece artwork line the walls, creating a vintage-feel to the dining experience.
