My friend’s been bugging me to take him to Peter Luger’s ever since he quit his day job. He’s since resumed work halfway around the world, but the bugging continued, so I promised him steak during his next stateside visit as a thank you for helping me with my fantasy team.
I made reservations less than a week ahead and was slightly worried they would be full, but I easily got a 9:45pm seating on a Sunday night. It was their last seating and the place was still bustling when we arrived.
I’ve heard of negative service, but our service was fine. We got a bottle of red, a slab of bacon (I’m glad we didn’t get more because it is thick and fatty), creamed spinach, and a medium rare porterhouse for two. Proper steak.
My friend unexpectedly ended paying for half! The place is cash only unless you have their credit card. I left super stuffed (shouldn’t have eaten earlier), satisfied, and sleepy.
