Choice Joints & Rare Luxury – New York’s Top 5 Steakhouses

Finding a good steak in the city can be rare; so if you do find one, well done (pun intended). In New York City, there are a myriad of options when hunting for that delicious, mouth watering steak. To make your life easier here are Haute Living’s top 5 Steak Houses in New York.

Peter Luger Steak House

Anyone who knows steak in NY knows Lugers. The Peter Luger Steak House was established in 1887 and boasts a mix of clientele as rich and varied as the city itself. The restaurant is as traditional a steakhouse as you will find, and has been rated New York’s number 1 for 24 years in a row. As a glowing endorsement, the reviews just get juicier and juicier.

’No other steakhouse serves a porterhouse so breathtaking’ New York Times, ‘makes carnivores salivate at just hearing the name’ Zagat Survey 2007, ‘maintains a level of steak quality that is simply unmatched in America’, Gourmet Magazine.

Located in Brooklyn, the decor is more functional than luxurious, and the staff has a reputation of being more salty than sweet, but don’t let that deter you. The creamed spinach is nearly as famous as the buttery marbled porterhouse, and sharing, if you’re so inclined, is de rigueur. You can order a steak for 2, 3 or 4 and do not leave without trying the renowned Peter Luger ‘Old Fashioned Sauce’.

If that’s not enough, for the lazier steak lover, the Peter Luger delivery service will bring succulent rib eye straight to your door. However, for the full experience, get to the establishment itself and you’ll leave licking your fingers and utterly content.

Peter Luger Steakhouse is located at 178 Broadway, Brooklyn,
