Peter Luger Steak House
The 13 Best Steakhouses in NYC
This Brooklyn institution has been the subject of glowing reviews and no-holds-barred takedowns through the 133+ years it has been open, but it’s undeniably a NYC classic and no steakhouse list is complete without it. Yes, it can be inconsistent, they don’t take credit cards (we know, they started taking debit cards—not the same thing), and it’s overpriced. Has it gone downhill at times in its illustrious history? Sure. Is it still one of the most legendary steakhouses in NYC? Of course. And its porterhouse, burger, and ice cream sundae are still must eats.
