A trip to this New York institution is a foregone conclusion for anyone who is into steaks.
In my personal opinion, it is the total experience that makes Peter Luger memorable, not just for the steak.
We had ordered the dry-aged USDA Prime Steak done medium-rare and yes, it delivered on all fronts and had a nice crisp finish but to be frank, it didn’t quite blow me away like I thought it would. Perhaps the reason is the fame of this restaurant had led me to set my expectations too high.
It has to be said however, that our choice of appetiser, the thick slab of sizzling bacon, was incredible. No prizes for guessing what was my absolute favourite thing here.
By the way, we were informed by the staff there will be a Peter Luger Steakhouse opening in Tokyo in 2020. So if you are planning a trip there next year, you can consider stopping by for a meal.
