What a gem! It's both a cookbook and a history book of the restaurant and the later-Victorian to Edwardian era dining scene in New York. It's well written, well articulated, it flows, tells a story with just enough background and back-story to keep you turning the pages. Besides that, the recipes have been updated and are each well explained. And if that is not enough...the book is simply beautiful and will be just as admired on your coffee table as it will be appreciated in the kitchen.

"Dining at Delmonico's" provides a cookbook approach to understanding the cuisine served by the finest restaurant of its time. The visual presentation to the eye while looking through the book is delicious. The ingredients and preparation have in some cases been modified just enough to allow todays chefs to achieve the flavor of the time with the components available today. It must be kept in mind that Delmonico's prepared and served its delights over a number of years with a number of chefs. This book is a way to achieve the flavor of the time not always with the precision of each chef or the variations that of ingredients available back then.I am a want-a-be chef and found the directions very well adapted to todays to my skill level.

Please keep in mind the reason I purchased "Dining at Delmonico's" was as a research book. I write fiction and one of my characters had been a sues chef at Delmonico's in that time. This book gave my a reference as to the taste of that period.

If there is a down side to this book I would say that the historical perspective is not the aim of the authors but rather this book allows the reader to experience, first hand, what an evening Dining at Delmonico's may have been like.

As to other works to compare it to, I bought this book on line going solely on the written description. I did not see any other books listed that I thought fulfilled my need. I was more than pleased when I received the book. It provided me with first hand satisfaction of the flavor and taste of "Dining at Delmonico's."

A superlative book ... I wish a time machine could take me back to the restaurant's heyday. Many wonderful recipes, and a picture, too, of the Delmonico Ribeye steak, which gets the taste-buds going. I can absolutely recommend this book; I certainly intend to have a go at some of the recipes. A lovely book. Everyone should have a copy.

Nice history and pictures but don't think I would cook anything from it. It seems to me to be a little more complex than I would utilize.
