The Birth of a Culinary Legend of Delmonico’s
The story of how Delmonico came to be is quite interesting. It all started with a café and pastry shop, at 23 William Street, founded by two Italian-Swiss immigrants, Giovanni and Pietro Delmonico. Little did they know that this humble establishment would eventually turn into a hospitality empire with a chain of high-end restaurants catering to business leaders, prominent politicians, and revered cultural icons.
