Fodor's Review

Long before Brooklyn was chic, even the snobbiest Manhattanites flocked to Peter Luger's, which fired up its grill for the first time in 1887. Other steak houses have more elegant ambience, bigger wine lists, and less brusque service, but the meat here makes the trip undeniably worth it. Three tips: bring a meat-eating buddy or several (individual steaks are available, but porterhouse is served only for two, three, or four), make a reservation (prime slots fill up more than a month in advance), and bring lots of cash—Luger's doesn't take plastic. The lunch-only burger is beloved among locals, as is the bacon appetizer, available by the slice.
