One of Manhattan's oldest restaurants, Delmonico's, is in the process of returning to the Financial District after being closed for nearly three years
But there's a dispute over who holds the rights to the Delmonico's name
The Grgurev family who operate Delmonico's Instagram account, claim new leaseholders of the location are using the Delmonico's name in bad faith
The future of Delmonico's, the oldest steakhouse in the country which had been in operation since 1837 until the pandemic, appears to be at stake.
The 186-year-old restaurant, set in the Financial District, also serves as the exterior shots for The Continental Hotel in the John Wick series of films and has been closed for nearly three years.
However, there's currently a dispute with two parties now claiming to have the right to reopen the restaurant set in the Financial District.
The Continental is John Wick's most iconic location: a hotel for assassins where they can drink scotch, and make eyes at other assassins while they take care of 'business' in the heart of the Financial District.

Delmonico's was the name of the restaurant in Dodge City on Gunsmoke!.........
Google says there’s lots of Delmonico’s Steakhouses across the country.
He got around a lot.................
I watched a nice video from a chef at Delmonico’s to show me how to make great sautéed scallops with garlic wine sauce. It was a great help and I haven’t messed them up since watching. Turns out I was turning them too frequently.
I hope they sort out the mess. That place was an institution.
Yum, now I want scallops. Love them like that.
I can hardly ever get ‘dry’ scallops here in Phoenix. But a Vietnamese guy I met at the fish counter told me to get big wet processed ones and put them in lemon water, change water, let soak for 1/2 hour dry on many changes of paper towel. They actually taste good, get that crust, not steamed.
If you have not read THE ALIENIEST....it is a good read and talks a great deal about the original Delmonico’s.
Oooops... The Alienist.
“Turns out I was turning them too frequently.”
Scallops should only be turned once.
Delmonico’s in New Year is also where baked Alaska was created - the delicious dessert not the creepy degenerate Internet personality.
My dad was a head waiter there in the late forties. RIP Dad. I’ll hoist a glass of Scotch in your memory.
Exactly! That was my mistake before.
Yes, they are best when dry. I can’t get them super fresh here, but manage ok with frozen that I prep carefully, as you indicated. Drying is essential.
Would love to have The Dollars receipt for French Onion Soup.
I was so intent on cooking them correctly, so I watched that video several times and took good notes. I really paid attention to how brown to get them before turning. It was so good! I served over angel hair pasta with a side of sautéed zucchini and yellow squash. Heavenly, and really pretty easy! I didn’t have roasted garlic on hand so added pressed garlic just after setting the scallops aside.
The Willard’s. I hate auto correct.
No, you are the very last person who would know about turning scallops. The last time we talked about dinner, you claimed to be trapping wild game for you and the Mrs.
The Dollars? Not sure where that is, but I can try to find a recipe for you.
