Lorenzo Delmonico

(March 13, 1813 - 1881)

Lorenzo Delmonico was born in Marengo, Switzerland and was invited to join his uncles in their successful pastry shop and catering business in New York in 1831. He soon transformed the business into one of the first, best, most elegant and famous restaurants in the country, Delmonico’s. Lorenzo was not a chef, but he purchased the food and created the very extensive menu. He helped make the concept of the 'restaurant' an acceptable and successful one.

After many moves the final Delmonico’s restaurant was forced to close in 1923, a victim of Prohibition.
