New York’s trendy indie hub – Williamsburg isn’t the kind of district you’d expect to find one of the best restaurants in New York, yet the Brooklyn-based Peter Luger Steakhouse occupies a prime position in the most populous district of the city, and has done so for over 120 years. Serving up a mean no frills sirloin; Peter Luger Steakhouse shys away from the ambiguity of up-town restaurants, and has resolutely stuck with the dedication to quality and simplicity that has fed it’s ever-growing reputation. Prime rib steak occupies American diner sized platters, served with creamy mash potato, verdant garden peas and cholesterol-rich German fried potatoes. The 4 inch thick Luger Burger is a real feat of culinary engineering, oozing melted cheese atop thick beef and fresh tomato, encased within a domed, toasted bun to boot.
