There are many great steak places in New York but my favorite is
Peter Luger Steak House!
It is very popular so make your reservation well in advance. If not, you will probably have to eat dinner early – 4:45PM or late – 10:00PM.
When you go to Peter Luger by subway from Manhattan take the M train on the JMZ line to the Marcy Avenue station but make sure you take the Uptown Queens bound train rather than the Downtown Brooklyn bound train.
Also, Peter Luger’s doesn’t take credit cards so bring cash or use the ATM outside of the restaurant.
This is for one person! So big! But it’s so delicious you’ll definitely try to finish it.
Be careful not to eat too much of the delicious bread while you wait.
For side dishes, I recommend the Creamed Spinach and the Luger’s Special German Fried Potatoes but that might be too much food.
This is Medium.
Peter Luger’s house label Cabernet Sauvignon
Desserts are excellent as well but you might be too full to eat them.
My recommendation is to go for an early dinner and walk across the Williamsburg Bridge where you will get an excellent view of the Manhattan skyline.
Once you are back in Manhattan, you will be on the Lower East Side, a very hot area these days.
You can have a drink at a trendy bar or walk a bit further to Chinatown for a massage!
