Peter Luger's Steak House, Brooklyn, New York . They have been voted the number ONE restaurant in New York for the past 15 years.
If Your talking about New York and also talking about Steak, you must be talking about Peter Luger's Steak House, Brooklyn, New York. And if you are talking about Peter Luger’s you just have to be talking about their Brooklyn location. They do have another location in Great neck, Long Island, but I’m going to tell you to forgetaboutit.
Any New Yorker will tell you that it just ain’t the same.
Located at the foot of the Brooklyn side of the Williamsburg Bridge is a place that has been there since well before I was born, in fact, i just looked it up and it was started in 1887. So I was right, that was before I was born.
Some people say that it was originated by a meat God. Nothing to look at, it’s really nothing fancy, it kind of resembles a German beer-hall, with gruff and at times unceremonious waiters that sometimes look like they have been there since 1887 when this place first opened.
Luger’s is an Steak Lovers delight if you have ever seen one. they have been delivering mouthwatering porterhouse steaks prepared in a way that has not changed in more than 100 years. Your waiter will tell you to tart with a tomato and onion salad, doused with steak sauce and he is right. Or their Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail
Your Porterhouse steak will be excellent - perfectly cooked, extremely tender, and amazing tasty, I guess they have some super beef secret. Because nobody does it better. It might be better to go with a group of 3-4 people so that you can try multiple types of steaks. It would be a shame to just try one. And for you Lobster lovers, this is one of the best place to get those as well.
Be prepared for a long wait for your table even if you made your reservation 30 days ago, (and you must) but they have a great Bar with a great bartender and a fun Bar crowd ranging from from Wall Street Brokers to People on Dates or just folks going out for a great time. You’ll see just about all types there drinking loads of Vocka’s, Scotch, Beer and Martinis. And all with heavy Brooklyn accents I’m sure your going to be are completely full by the end of the meal but if you are not, try the Apple Strudel, Cheese Cake, or their Bavarian Crepe Cake
And by the way, come with lots of cash, this is one of the few places in the world where no credit cards are accepted except their own. Of which I happen to have. Oh, and if you are interested, a Steak dinner with all the trimmings will run you about $90.00 per person
