NEW YORK, NY -- Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of the Broadway hit "Hamilton," has been honored with his own famous caricature at the world-renowned Broadway watering hole, Sardi's on Tuesday. Miranda is now one of 227 portraits hanging on the walls of the famous restaurant, which includes caricatures of Chita Rivera, Rosie Perez and John Leguizamo.

Members of the Miranda family and "Hamilton" cast members Phillipa Soo and Leslie Odom Jr. attended the ceremony. Miranda's mother, Luz Towns-Miranda, told the Associated Press the walls in Sardi's were Broadway's version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

"This is Broadway's equivalent," Towns-Miranda said. "Basically, he's being honored by Broadway."
