Valentine’s Day in the Grand Style

Billy Oliva

Delmonico’s, NYC and Southampton, NY

A cornerstone of elegance since its 1837 opening as America's first fine-dining restaurant, Delmonico's gave rise to iconic dishes like Eggs Benedict and Lobster Newburg. For our annual Valentine's Day fête, we've tapped chef Billy Oliva to prepare a timeless, romantic feast that promises to leave you swooning.
