Peter Luger Steak House
Posted by Sheck on 04/29/2010
Peter Luger is a family tradition. We've been going there for years, and they still serve steak so delicious you could cry. When you go, don't expect fawning service. That's not what a steak house is about. But, that said, we've never had anything but excellent service. And we keep things simple -- Porterhouse, of course. We always order one size less than the menu recommends. Porterhouse for 3 easily serves 2. Always creamed spinach. Always German potatoes. Always a slice or two of bacon to share. Maybe tomatoes. And a sundae. That's it. No menu necessary. No sauce either. Nothing needs it. We are lucky to have Peter Luger! More than 100 years of Brooklyn tradition! The steak is truly butter smooth, peak flavor, and an anti-depressant. Yes, there are other delicious steak places, but there is room in our hearts and stomachs for all of the greats! Plus, you get chocolate gelt at the end. Splurge and take your dad.

Went here with my family because of reputation. "No, you cannot have fillet mignon!" "I will tell you what you can have!" "You don't like a burnt crust? Go somewhere else!" " We don't need your business! We have enough lemmings willing to be insulted and give us their money!" Really, I have never been to such a pretentious place with such bad food.

Was afraid it was going to be a disappointment after all the "best steak in the United States" accolades, but it was above and beyond all expectations! The steak was butter tender and flavorful, the Peter Luger sauce was fitting for EVERYthing on the menu except for the desserts (as told to us by our waiter), German fried potatoes, creamed spinach - all amazing!

Old School New York City institution. Like being in a time capsule. Real taste of old New York.

Being a Manhattan transplant for the past decade I cherished the "Old New York" trek to the most looking forward to meat, this side of Atlantic. Which I did religiously everytime out-of-towners wanted the best steak New York can offer. And they did come around often. The rituals were invariably similar: they took the first bite, gasped and couldn't believe themselves for re-ordering the second steak for two, or three. Never have we room left for dessert, until yesterday. Yes, I finally found the grace in 'Holy Cow' fudge sundae after such a bland, or was it simply tasteless?, steak. For years I bared the mediocre service, suspiciously washcloth-looking napkins, and cheap liquors, all for a taste of the grail steak I had found, and not found anywhere else. Perhaps yesterday was a simple problem with the 'prime' in USDA prime or the 'dry' in dry-aged, or never mind, I'm unwilling to take more chances getting my ego slapped for dragging friends literally across the river for plain salted steaks.
