To get rid of, originally for killing someone. The phrase "80 miles out and 6 feet under" was reserved for someone who had to dig their own grave 80 miles from civilization and then get shot execution-style. All terms for 86'd originated from this, be it alcohol or eliminating.

To get rid of; to remove. Most commonly used in the restaurant industry today. It's origin shows it was commonly used in the late 1800's and was a contraction for "take 'em 8 miles out and plant 'em 6 feet deep". It was basically a request(order) to have some removed from the face of the earth. In restaurants it means to take an item off the menu or available food list because they have run out (or are having issues with) an item or to quit service or allow entry to an individual.

In the early days of the Remington and Royal typewriters, when paper was expensive and the results messy, overtyping to block out errors (e.g.: old prices on the daily menu or items out of stock) was common. Repeated typing
of the the digits 86 over a word would cover almost any previously typed word. The X was also used, and when you either typed "X" or "86" over a word the resulting edit was always called an "86" and anything so blotted out was "86'd". That's the connection with Delmonico's, and other downtown NYC eateries where the menus were printed for the day or week and had to be "overtyped" to eliminate items off the menu.
