Expert review of Peter Luger

If you love steak you must go here.

In a town where good steak is easy to find this institution goes one step further.

Food and drink: 

It’s all about the broiled steak here, slabs of excellent porterhouse cooked to perfection served with creamed spinach or crispy hash brown potatoes. But if you are a vegetarian look elsewhere.

Ambience: 

The space isn’t much to look at but the tables of bankers and bachelor party groups are here for the steak not the design.

Service: 

The staff are gruff but once your order arrives you won’t care.

Location: 

Just over the Manhattan Bridge but easily accessible by cab or subway.

Price advice: 

The steak for two will set you back US$85 and that’s before the sides, appetizers and drinks, so best to go here on an expense account or at lunch when there are several specials for less than US$15.

Tables to book: 

Since they are all relatively the same, the main thing is to just get a reservation.
