Peter Luger Steak House

New York, US

Established in Brooklyn in 1887, Peter Luger deserves its reputation. Initially a café and billiards den frequented by the neighbourhood’s German population, as the Williamsburg Bridge and industry rose, so too did the restaurant's appeal to businessmen seeking an evergreen spot for lunch. Indeed, it was one of the regulars who took over following the death of the eponymous owner. Since then, the family-run steakhouse has gone from strength to strength. It’s thanks, in part, to the consistent quality of the flagship offering: USDA Prime short loin is carefully chosen by the family before being dry-aged on site, broiled and served sharing style for two, three or four, alongside exemplary creamed spinach and German fried potatoes. A masculine, saddle-brown space provides an atmospheric sense of history, while the pared-back menu is bolstered by slabs of sizzling, extra-thick bacon, wedge salads with homemade dressing, and a well-pitched wine list.
