Peter Luger Steakhouse
Peter Luger lets the steaks speak for themselves, and it works: the chain, including this tavern-like Williamsburg location, is consistently voted the best steakhouse in NYC and earned one Michelin star in 2012. Starting in 1887, Peter Luger’s trademark has been prime cuts, particularly the porterhouse. There are daily lunch specials like pot roast and filet of sole, but the steak reigns supreme. The servers aren’t always the most suave, but the juice-draped porterhouse makes up for it. And if one meal isn’t enough, prime cuts and the Old-Fashioned steak sauce can be ordered online.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
