I originally planned to surprise my "beef eater" hubby with a dinner to the original Peter Lugar's in Brooklyn despite our hotel reservations in Midtown. Reservations at the Brooklyn location (many weeks in advance) have proved to be a problem for the Saturday evening special event, and it seems Long Island/Great Neck is not the favored location among Chowhounds for the "real deal."
What other steakhouses would you recommend? From our hometown, we can experience Morton's, Del Frisco, the Palm, Ruth's Chris. However, if you feel NYC is superb to other locations, please advise.
Many thanks! (Sorry for the thread below which seemed to cause some disturbance among Lugar Lovers). :-)
