On June 8, 2013, Delmonico’s Restaurant Group celebrated the grand opening of its new Hamptons location, Delmonico’s of Southampton Est. 1837, with a special champagne brunch. Southampton Mayor Mark Epley welcomed Delmonico’s – the country’s first restaurant and birthplace of American favorites like Eggs Benedict, Baked Alaska and the Delmonico Steak – to New York’s first English settlement in a ceremonial ribbon cutting. In honor of the special occasion, Delmonico’s of Southampton also presented a donation to the African American Museum of the East End.
Guests at the opening had the opportunity to try some of the amazing dishes such as the crab cake eggs benedict, lobster newburg, tuna and steak tartar, filet mignon and more. To wash down the delicious hors d’oeuvres, there were bottles and bottles of champagne, vodka, wine and prosecco! Just to top everything off, there was even an oyster bar. Delmonico’s is known for luxury and their new Hamptons location definitely does not miss a beat. With their stylish seaside spin on the flagship Delmonico’s Restaurant in downtown Manhattan, the restaurant is sure to be a hit with locals and vacationers. Being the first fine dining restaurant in the United States, who can argue with their level of detail to aesthetics and quality of food.
