Why Peter Luger is One of NYC’s Finest Steakhouses

Peter Luger

For many people, nothing beats a huge steak cooked to perfection. That is why many people’s first choice when dining out is to dine in a steakhouse. For those who live in New York City or those who are visiting the city, there is a vast selection of steakhouses in which you can choose to eat. Therefore, it is tricky to decide which is the best in terms of the food available, the ambiance, and the overall dining experience. While which is the finest steakhouse is somewhat down to personal opinion, there are many that argue that Peter Luger Steakhouse is one of the finest NYC steakhouses. The following is an overview of this restaurant and the reasons why it is one of the best steakhouses in the city.

Peter Luger Steakhouse has become something of an establishment in Brooklyn, where their flagship restaurant is located. In fact, Eater describes it as an iconic Brooklyn restaurant that is the very definition of an institution. This is partly because of the establishment’s long history, as it has been open as a chophouse since 1887. Due to its long and successful history, this steakhouse has developed an excellent reputation amongst locals.

The Menu

One of the main criteria of the quality of the restaurant is the choice of food they serve and the quality of the dishes. Before even looking at the offerings on the menu, it is worth noting that the primary feedback from customers is that the portions are extremely generous, and some have described their belly as aching due to eating so much during a visit to Peter Luger Steakhouse.

The lunch menu changes daily in both restaurants as they offer different steak specials. For example, on Mondays, you may find that the specials include pot roast and chopped steak, while on other days you may also find roast prime ribs of beef and USDA prime steaks. Other options at lunch include a double-thick split lamb chop or grilled salmon. All lunch dishes come with potatoes and vegetables. At dinner, a wider choice is available. The appetizer menu consists predominantly of salads with a choice of dressings or sauces. The highlight of the main menu is the steaks. There are options for prime steak, rib steak or porterhouse steak, all of which you can order according to the number of people who are dining. An interesting feature of eating a steak at this steakhouse that makes it stand apart from its competitors is that the steaks are dry-aged in the restaurants own aging box. Diners say that the steaks are cooked exactly as they have ordered them and that they are humungous, juicy, and tender.

Of course, steaks are not the only options on the menu. There is also umbo shrimp cocktail available in various sizes, a double-thick split lamb chop, grilled Atlantic salmon, or fillet of sole. To accompany your entrée, you can choose from a selection of potato and vegetable side dishes. Diners warn that the portion sizes are large, so you may not feel like a dessert. However, if you have a sweet tooth, you can try something from the dessert menu. You will see steakhouse classics such as key lime pie, apple strudel, pecan pie, and cheesecake. All the desserts are served with Schlag, which is a type of homemade whipped cream. For drinks, there is a decent wine list for you to choose your perfect bottle of wine to accompany your meal. You can also order some wines by the glass. If you prefer, you can opt for a refreshing beer or a spirit instead.

Other than the food and drink, the ambiance and the customer service are two further factors that can impact on the overall dining experience. This steakhouse has an old-school vibe that is warm, friendly, and relaxing. This makes it a great place to hang out with friends or family enjoying a delicious meal in a relaxed environment. There is also something comforting about the aroma in this restaurant, which is a combination of the beef in the aging process, and the smell of the steaks cooking on the grill. The customer service is excellent, according to diners, with friendly staff who are welcoming and try their best to make your visit to Peter Luger Steakhouse as enjoyable as possible.

The prices at Peter Luger are reasonable and compare favorably with their local competition. Therefore, it is an affordable and good value option, especially when you consider the size of the steaks they serve. It is worth noting that neither the Brooklyn nor the Great Neck locations accept credit cards. Acceptable methods of payment include cash, debit cards, a Peter Luger Card, or US checks with identification.
