Peter Luger Restaurant Review

: For over a century, carnivores have been traversing the Williamsburg Bridge to the Brooklyn side to sample consistently excellent steaks at Peter Luger. Established in 1887, the steakhouse delivers plus-size porterhouse steaks prepared in a method that has not changed since the first day they fired up the grill. Start with a tomato and onion salad, doused with steak sauce --- the sauce is there strictly for the salad and for dipping rolls into, and should not be allowed to touch the delectable meat. For an entrée, don't bother considering anything but the porterhouse steak for the table; it will send devout carnivores into a delighted daze and may convert a non-meat eater or two. Classic sides include onion rings, french fries, hashbrowns and creamed spinach. Servers are appropriately gruff and shopworn; most of them have worked at the steakhouse for years. A limited but reasonably priced wine list offers mostly red wines from California, with some French and Italian offerings.
