Bring glamour and style into your home, featuring stories, ideas for entertaining, and seventy-five recipes from the Tuccis, the family that ran Delmonico's in its golden era.

Located in the heart of Wall Street, Delmonico's from 1827 to the 1980s shaped New York City's restaurant scene. Under the original ownership of The Delmonico Brothers, Pietro and Giovanni, Delmonico's introduced the first farm-to-table concept, a la carte dining -- complete with white tablecloths and menus -- but most notably created the phenomenon called the "power lunch." Despite Delmonico's triumphs, the impact of World War I and the era of Prohibition caused the family to cease operations, shuttering the restaurant in 1923.

In 1926 a new era for Delmonico's arose. Oscar Tucci, a Tuscan immigrant, took over ownership and re-established Delmonico's first as a Speakeasy and then he continued the Delmonico brothers' tradition, transforming it to a beacon of fine dining. Oscar developed a strict code of hospitality, etiquette, and operations coupled with legendary libations and superb fare known as the Delmonico way.

After six decades of operations, The Tucci Family closed Delmonico's in the late 1980s, however the Delmonico way still lives on today because of Max Tucci. The Delmonico Way: Sublime Entertaining and Legendary Recipes from the Restaurant That Made New York by Max Tucci, Oscar's grandson, opens the double doors of his family's Delmonico's, welcoming us to a world when dining out was a glamorous affair. Max along with his celebrity chef friends offer timeless recipes and Max, shares his tips for recreating the magic of the Delmonico way at home. 

Renowned designer Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich expertly layers vintage era photographs, ephemera, menus, and countless other gems featured in The Delmonico Way that remind us that entertaining with style, elegance, sophistication, and intention remain just as relevant today as it did during the height of the era.
