It was created at Delmonico's in New York, or maybe at Claridge's Hotel in London, or even in Miami, Long Island or at the Waldorf. It may have been created by Foxhall Keene (or J.R. Keene), or by the Chef at Claridge's (and named for his father). Other stories tell of its creation by Chef George Greenwald at the Brighten Beach Hotel, and named for his boss.
