I was unable to get a decent dining time at the original Peter Luger's restaurant in Brooklyn for an upcoming Saturday night. However, the Long Island location had prime time dining available (7:30 p.m.).
Please share your opinions of both locations related to food quality, service, environment, etc. We are traveling from out-of-state, staying in Manhattan, and realize we'll be incurring some substantial cab fare for the experience. I have read quite extensively that Luger's is an experience not to be missed. This dinner is a surprise for my beef-loving hubby.
One observation: in pursuing these dining reservations, the Long Island reservationist was courteous and accomodating while the reservationist at the Brooklyn location responded as if looking for a time slot was an imposition. Not that this is indicative of the experience, however it did make an impression.
