The rivalry between New York and Philadelphia as food cities has persisted for more than 150 years. Back in 1851, a bunch of New York foodies, thinking to dazzle their provincial cousins, invited a prestigious group of our local eaters to Manhattan for a dinner at Delmonico’s–the best restaurant the city had to offer. They told Lorenzo Delmonico to “astonish our Quaker City friends with the sumptuousness of our feast,” and that they didn’t care what it cost.
Unsurprisingly, the dinner was impressive, the Philadelphians were duly impressed, and the New Yorkers thought they’d won what would become America’s first cooking contest.
Until the Philadelphians invited the New Yorkers to come to THEIR house.
