NYC Eats: Peter Luger Steak House in Brooklyn

Synonymous with great tasting steak and voted 27 times in a row as NYC’s best steakhouse, Peter Luger is indeed a household name when it comes to serving up the finest steaks. After all, this 125 year old establishment is also a one star Michelin restaurant!

Located at about a 15min walk from the nearest subway station, Peter Luger greets you with its boisterous and lively atmosphere as you step through the rugged wooden doors of the restaurant. This place is hardly fine dining and is in fact more casual and unfussed, evident from the simple layout and architecture. The walls are filled with framed certificates of their awards and accolades, even more proof of what a crowd pleaser Peter Luger has been over the years.

Reservations are a MUST at this place and we rushed here after a 5hr flight from Seattle. We were clearly excited to see or rather taste how special this award winning steak really was.

A basket of bread was delivered to our table straight after our orders were placed. There were mainly three types of bread- taste wise, it was not too bad. It was however cold and hard. I was a tad disappointed but I was not about to pass a judgement on a steakhouse simply on their basket of rolls.
