Peter Luger vs. Keens

uwsister | Aug 23, 2009 10:22 AM

My parents are visiting from Asia & they LOVE to eat steak when they're here (it's very expensive in their home country.) So I'm thinking I'd like to treat them to one of the legendary steakhouses when they arrive, like Peter Luger or Keens. There are a couple things to consider. They're staying in UWS & I don't know if they'd want to travel all the way to Brooklyn, especially after a 14-hour flight. Also the cost also matters as *I* would like to treat them, not the other way around -- I'm thinking around $100/person but would like to go cheaper if it's possible... (factor in cab cost from UWS to Peter Luger too, which I imagine would be $30+) They're moderate drinkers & I don't drink at all. And of course I would like them to have a memorable, classic NY experience and GREAT steaks -- if Peter Luger is THAT much better than Keens, being farther away, more expensive, etc. could be overlooked, and vice versa.

What do you guys think? Your opinions are MUCH appreciated -- my husband ONLY eats organic meat and not a red meat person so I've never been to either, but been wanting to go to both for a while...
