Peter Luger: Not as great as the hype

son of a butcher | Oct 28, 2007 04:48 PM

Just had lunch there. First time there in 15 years. The service was good, the onion buns great, the beer cold, the German potatoes ok, the tomato and onion salad, ordinary, the spinach good, and the STEAK: ORDINARY. I have as good a steak in my own house, bought at local butcher shops. Yes it was soft, buttery, well grilled, I like my steak rare to medium rare, but taste wise:Bland. To those that think this is the best steak in the country, well meat is not as good as it used to be, but this is not the best steak in the U.S. I bought meat at Costco that was more flavorful.
