Luger's porterhouse steak with German fried potatoes and creamed spinach

Last night I went to Peter Luger’s Steak House. This probably tops my list of the 10 best restaurants to visit in New York City. Some people may disagree but I believe this is by far the best steak I have ever had. I wouldn’t say to many people disagree considering it has been rated New Yorks #1 steak house for 26 years! We had reservations, which generally is a must because you will never find a slow night at this place. If you really need a menu then you can ask the waiter for one but I wouldn’t recommend it because they usually look at you funny. Trust me you really only need to know a few things to order. And regardless of what you may have heard, the wait staff is helpful and they won’t let you over order. They start you off with a freshly baked assortment of bread, just be careful not to fill up on it. They also serve you their world famous Peter Luger’s steak sauce. This sauce was in such demand that they started selling it at the restaurant and now at grocery stores all over the city. And if you can’t find it near you, you can also order it on their website. The sauce

Dry Aged Porterhouse Steak

tastes like a mix between cocktail and horseradish sauce and it goes great on literally everything. There were four of us so we ordered the steak for three, two sides of creamed

Extra thick Canadian bacon

spinach, three slabs of extra thick sizzling Canadian bacon, and Luger’s special German fried potatoes. My favorite is that they tilt your steak plate just slightly so that all of the rich buttery goodness from the steak is drizzling down the medium-rare meat. Once you take a bite, the juice bursts out of every crevice of meat. Every now and then you will get a piece that is crispy (blackened char) on the outside and tender on the inside. The sides also go great with the butter from the steak. I literally dip everything in the butter. The creamed spinach and golden fried potatoes are absolutely heavenly.

Buttery Goodness

At this point you are probably thinking you have no room for dessert. But don’t give up on that thought just yet! All of Luger’s delicious, sinful desserts are served with their homemade “Schlag” (whipped cream). We ordered the “Holy Cow” hot fudge sunday.  Need I say more? And if you are a strudel fan, they have a killer warm Apple Strudel dessert.

In the end Peter Luger’s has my vote for the most mouthwatering, juicy and succulent dry-aged steak I have ever had. This place is not just an amazing steak house, it is a legendary establishment. Whether you are out with friends and family or for a special occasion, you will not be let down.  And if you don’t take my word for it then try it for yourself. You won’t regret it.
