Peter Luger is the best in the business. Zagat has rated it the best steak house in NYC for 20 years in a row. Yes it is expensive and yes they only take cash or their own private credit card but once you have tried their mouth-watering steak you will know why it is worth every penny. The Brooklyn location has been around since 1887 and is worth the trip for those who live outside of Kings County. Parking is available in a lot across the street.
On September 1, 2004 my now husband got down on one knee in the middle of the restaurant and asked me to marry him. I cried in my steak. Every waiter came to our table to congratulate us. The owner sent over a slice of cheesecake in honor of the occasion. Don’t be fooled by the description – a slice is more like a HUNK. I have kept my gold chocolate coin as a remembrance of that night and the delectable meal we had.
There are many fine steak houses in NYC and the rest of the United States but none can compare to the quality of Peter Luger.
