“America’s first restaurant” is still going strong: In November, Delmonico’s opened a midtown location on West 36th Street, and now the nineteenth-century hot spot is expanding to Southampton. Owner Dennis Turcinovic said there’s also a third Manhattan outpost in the works (Delmonico’s still holds down the fort at its original Beaver Street location), as well as a possible Miami restaurant. Another sign of changes to come: The new 5,000-square-foot Hamptons location, which will open in April, is going to serve up classic dishes in addition to “lighter fare for the Hamptons crowd.” That better mean that Lobster Newberg, Delmonico steak, and Baked Alaska are still on the menu. Can the city give landmark designation to food? [NYP]
