1. DelMonico's Building Marker
Inscription. This Renaissance Revival style building, designed by the architect James Brown Lord in 1891, is the only surviving structure associated with Delmonico's, the legendary dining establishment. Founded in 1827, it was one of the first restaurants in the United States to serve fine Continental fare and was a favorite gathering place for New York society and visiting dignitaries. The building's elaborate corner entrance has twin marble columns, reputedly brought from Pompeii by John Delmonico, that were salvaged from the restaurant's previous building on this site. The building was converted to residential use in 1996.
Erected 2004 by New York Landmarks Preservation Foundation.
