Voted NYC's No. 1 steakhouse for the 30th year in a row, this circa-1887 Williamsburg "landmark" offers a "classic, straightforward" menu (highlighted by a "terrific" aged porterhouse) that "hasn't changed" in eons but still draws big "crowds"; "gruff" service and a "no-frills, boys'-club" ambiance are "part of the experience", and don't forget to bring "plenty of cash" – it doesn't accept credit cards.

About the Restaurant

Peter Luger holds a Michelin star, was named the Best Steakhouse in the Country by USA Today in 2012, and has dominated Zagat's Best Steakhouse in New York title for nearly three decades. The restaurant earned these awards for doing what it's done since 1887: Serving expertly broiled cuts of prime, dry-aged meat. A steak for one is available, but it's customary to order a porterhouse (one side is tenderloin, the other is New York strip) for two, or more, people. Sides and salads, such as sliced tomatoes and onions, fried or baked potatoes, creamed spinach, and iceberg wedges, are pleasing afterthoughts. The Luger-Burger, made from prime chuck and porterhouse trimmings, is only available at lunchtime. Service is charmingly brusque, and the baronial dining room (ancient wood paneling, leaded-glass windows, butcher-block tables, brass chandeliers, and a collection of beer steins) is always packed with suited Wall Street types, boisterous groups, and fifth-generation regulars. Make your reservation at least a month in advance — and bring plenty of cash.
