Delmonico Grill was established in 2007 by popular, local Chef Pete Franklin, who built a reputation for great steaks, seafood and wine in a Jazzy comfortable setting. Classics such as the "On Green Dolphin St." and the "Kona" ribeye made permanent homes for themselves on the menu as well as the "Bourbon Sweet-potato Mash" and the "French Onion Soup."


When Pete was called to move on to new endeavors, he couldn't bear to see the place close, so he called on a friend, neighbor, and local chef Benjamin Klinkel to take the baton. Benjamin always has a vision and a desire to see things for what they can be and has since implemented a new style and flavor all his own.


Paying homage to the classics that made Delmonico the successful steakhouse it is today and bringing new life and vibrancy to the dining room and the kitchen with the help of a young talented staff of chefs, managers and servers eager to show what they can do with the grand scope of available wine and cuisine offerings both worldwide and right here at home. We hope you enjoy our passion.
