Went there to celebrate finishing the marathon. Let me start by saying that I think Peter Luger is overrated and has been sliding by on it's reputation for years. There are too many great steakhouses in Manhattan and B&J's is a perfectly good alternative to PL. The service and decor is much nicer, they actually treat you with a little bit of courtesy, they accept credit cards and they're much more convenient to get to. They have nice options for non-steak eaters, a nice wine list and are not overly pricey (not cheap but not excessively priced) The only problem with B&J's is the overwhelming competition of other steakhouses in Manhattan- Bobby Van's, BLT Prime, Del Frisco's etc. I would be perfectly happy to go back to B&J's and would choose them over PL any day.
Pros: Attentive service, wide menu choices, nice private rooms
