Peter Luger
We’re talking serious red meat for carnivorous connoisseurs. They expect nothing less than USDA Prime, and they get what they deserve at Peter Luger, voted once again The Best Steakhouse on Long Island! They sink their teeth into Luger’s famous dry-aged premium short loins, carefully cared for under pristine conditions of temperature, humidity and air. Once these cuts are judged ready, they’re broiled to perfection and served with a great order of sides. People driving over the Williamsburg Bridge can see the original Brooklyn location where Peter Luger opened his restaurant in 1887. The Forman family bought the place in 1950, mastering the porterhouse and so much more (Did anyone say “burgers”!?), and expanding the enterprise to Great Neck, where it beckons us today. 255 Northern Blvd., Great Neck, 516-487-8800, peterluger.com
