Classic Manhattan eatery Delmonico's is slated to open this spring in the 5000 sf space on Elm Street formerly occupied by Savanna's (remember that controversy this summer?). Dennis Turcinovic, owner of the Delmonico Restaurant Group of Manhattan, is currently in contract to buy the property and has already begun some remodeling work on the building. Delmonico's of Southampton will be open year round. On the menu will be classic dishes as well as "lighter fare for the Hamptons crowd." Hey, we're not all supermodels out here! Baked Alaska, please, and make it snappy.
The first Delmonico's restaurant opened in lower Manhattan in 1837, serving signature dishes such as lobster Newburg, Delmonico steak, and Manhattan clam chowder. The original Delmonico-family-owned restaurants closed in 1923. Since then the name has passed into the public domain and a number of restaurants called Delmonico's have appeared in New York City, including the current incarnation.
