Delmonico Steakhouse features one of the top whiskey menus in the country, boasting nearly 440 different types of whiskey from seven countries. Mixologist and bar manager Max Solano also crafts special cocktails from many of these whiskeys, adding them to his secret cocktail menu (only available during a full moon, or upon request).
The restaurant’s cocktail menu is divided into three sections: Vintage, Specialty, and Whiskey. Patrons receive a bit of history along with their libation from the Vintage section, including a 1944 Mai Tai Roa Ae, a Hemingway Daiquiri and a Jack Rose. Delmonico’s signature cocktail, the Delmonico Coquetel, combines a sumptuous blend of Tanqueray Rangpur gin, Brachetto D’Aqui sparkling dessert wine, fresh ruby red grapefruit and lime juices and a homemade five-spiced infused simple syrup. Jump to the whiskey section and you can imbibe with A Wee Bit Flor-Ral!, a Bacon & Bourbon Manhattan, and an appropriately named Milking My Honey.
The bar at Delmonico Steakhouse is open for lunch 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. and 5 p.m.-until.
