At this old-school chops house—equipped with a 50-foot marble bar, dark yellow leather chairs and beige wallpaper—Peter Luger alums dole out seafood alongside meaty specialties. Like the Rockefeller Center flagship, this second midtown location features dry-aged steaks (filet mignon, prime rib), as well as sides like truffled mac and cheese and a fried-mozzarella-and-tomato salad.
