Peter Luger's - outlying experience

JOhnson Princhot | Sep 5, 200302:35 PM     7

I went once, only once to Luger's but didn't find what all the fuss is about their steaks. Sure, it was tender and cooked at the proper temperature, but it had almost no flavor (i.e. spicing, salting, pepper, whatever) save for some of the fattiness, which it was a little too fatty. is this the way it's supposed to be or was my experience just an outlier as in usually the steak has flavor too from spicing or whatever (best restaurant steak i had so far from the standpoint of tenderness and flavor is the Dabney Coleman 1 pounder NY steak at Dan Tana's in Los Angeles, also the most expensive at 40 bucks a pop, though comes with a side of pedestrian spahatteghi or fettucine alfredo.)
