On our last trip to NYC, my girlfriend and I made reservations at Lugers after reading many comments about what a great steak place it is.
Nothing but hype. The steak was virtually tasteless. It tasted completely unseasoned and was extraordinarily fatty. I understand that good steaks need fat for flavor, but this one had way too much.
The hyped onion rings were a brick of greasy, tasteless twigs. I was expecting something great, and, instead, it was a brick of nonsense that you would expect to receive at Ruby Tuesday.
And to top it all off, the waiter was incredibly rude. He wore a scowl the entire time and acted like he was doing us a favor to take our order. He was so rude that we almost left prior to receiving our steak. I wish we had.
We thought we would salvage the meal with one of those purportedly great sundaes, and it stunk too. It was nothing you couldn't get at any run of the mill eatery.
