In 1827, the Delmonico brothers set up a small shop in the financial district selling fine pastries, coffees, chocolates, wines and liquors and Havana cigars. No doubt seeing that luxury sold, the brothers bought a plot of land at the intersection of Beaver, William and South William streets in the heart of the city's financial district and Delmonico's restaurant was born. It opened in 1837 and still operates today. There are now five restaurants in the Delmonico Restaurant Group.
