Delmonico's Restaurant Group
An urban landmark meets coastal cool this summer with the opening of ­DELMONICO’S OF SOUTHAMPTON EST. 1837 on Long Island, N.Y., the latest outpost of the Manhattan stalwart (and the country’s­ first fine-dining restaurant) that’s been delighting crowds for 175 years. Situated in the heart of the Hamptons, the year-round eatery offers a stellar menu emphasizing fresh, locally sourced ingredients — including catch-of-the-day seafood specialties and herbs and vegetables that are grown in an ­on-site garden. There are also updated versions of dishes Delmonico’s made famous, such as Baked Alaska and Eggs Benedict, as well as the classic Delmonico’s Steak, a juicy, triangular steak named for the iconic restaurant at which it originated.

The chic interior at Delmonico’s of Southampton pays tribute to the original restaurant with a series of old photographs that document its legacy, yet it retains the relaxed feel of its beachy surroundings with carved butcher-block tables, whitewashed chairs and plush paprika banquettes. During summer months, dining can spill outdoors onto expansive decks perfect for savoring a decadent weekend brunch, taking in some rays or simply contemplating life. After all, you’re part of history in the making at Delmonico’s.
