Although a slew of Luger copycats have prospered in the last several years, none have captured the elusive charm of this stucco walled, beer-hall style eatery, with well-worn wooden floors and tables, and waiters in waist coats and bow ties. Excess is the thing, be it the reasonably health- conscious tomato salad (thick slices of tomato and onion with an odd addition of steak sauce), the famous porterhouse for two, 44 ounces of sliced prime beef, or the decent apple strudel, which comes with a bowl full of schlag. Go for it all—it’s a singular New York experience that’s worth having.

Excellent steak cooked to perfection.  When I ask for medium rare, I get medium rare, still sizzling when it is brought to the table, not something that's been sitting under a heat lamp for 20 minutes.  The chicken, lamb, and salmon are not to be missed - most steakhouses give short shrift to anything that doesn't come from a cow, but not Peter Luger.  Prime rib and a baked potato = heaven!

Not as good as it used to be. Last time, about 4 months ago, our steaks were tough and not tasty. It was a good place in the 80's and early 90's.
