For NYC Restaurant Week, we went to Delmonico’s in the Financial District. As one of the oldest restaurants in New York, I felt a sense of class and regency as we had a moderately-priced, three-course dinner. Bread, of course, was present, and I started my dinner with a nice glass of Malbec. My meal is as follows:
Roasted Beet Risotto with Smoked Bacon, Winter Greens, and Aged Goat Cheese.
Petit Filet Mignon with Roasted Cauliflower, Whipped Potatoes, and a Cabernet Wine Sauce.
Baked Alaska with Meringue, Walnut Cake, Banana Gelato, and Apricot Jam.
Overall, I thought the food was good but not the best that I’ve had in New York. It was certainly a traditional/class meal, but the atmosphere alone at Delmonico’s is worth the visit.
