Peter Luger Steak House
(718) 387-7400
178 Broadway, near Driggs Avenue
Williamsburg, Brooklyn
$$$ Cash only


The restaurant Peter Luger has been around for an astonishing 120 years. It has inspired many imitators, but no other steakhouse serves a porterhouse so breathtaking. The beef has a subtle tang, an intense mineral quality, a crazy richness and a spectrum of textures: crunchy at the edges, and tender at the bone.
