It was time for dinner and what else to have but steak. New York has some of the best steakhouses in the country. And if you were to ask anyone for a recommendation, you’ll be overwhelmed with the variety. Thankfully, my friend already had one picked out and I tagged along for dinner. The place was Peter Luger, a Michelin star restaurant famous for it large porthouse aged steaks.

When you get inside it’s pretty busy. With the bar right at the entrance, most people are having a drink while waiting for a table. Make a reservation to avoid the wait. We waited for only ten minutes while things were being set up. The table itself was big enough for the four of us. After a brief look over the menu, we knew what we wanted and ordered. Our appetizers came out minutes after went through a few of their assorted breads. Don’t worry, we know not to fill ourselves up before getting to the enormous steak. That was the main objective. But there were some nice bites along the way and you can see those in the food pictures. Throughout the meal, the wait staff were attentive making sure we had our dessert and coffee. It was a complete meal that took an hour and a half to finish. That’s a good thing. We never felt like we were rushed, even with the crowds outside.

Verdict: A great steakhouse that combines tradition and great cuts of meat for an amazing experience.

Sizzling Bacon @Peter Luger

The reigning star of the night? Bacon. Yeah that's right, and at a steakhouse. It's just that spectacular. Crispened thick slabs of pork belly goodness. Purchased by the slice, you may want to get one for every two people if you're going for a large cut of steak.

$4.95USD/slice

Sizzling Bacon @Peter Luger

Now look at that. How can you not appreciate the sear to fat ratio? Let alone meat to fat. Alright alright, for those health conscious people, this equates to about a week of eating right and 6 miles of running. So worth it!

Caesar Salad @Peter Luger

In a feeble attempt to counter the bacon, we got a salad... one salad, to share. I think it really worked. Really!

13.95USD

Ox Impressions: 

Steak for Three @Peter Luger

For the four of us, this was perfect amount given we were going to have dessert and of course, some late night eats. The posterhouse came precut and yeah, my friends dug in before I got a complete picture. Yeah, that's how it should be really. I mean how could you blame them given that perfect medium rare dry aged steak.

$155.85USD

Ox Impressions: 

"Holy Cow" Hot Fudge Sundae @Peter Luger

Our sweet tooth's called and we opted to share a sundae between the four of us. What I thought would be only one spoon ended up to several. C'mon, we had to finish it.

$9.95USD

Ox Impressions: 

The Coin @Peter Luger

The infamous chocolate gold coin, a perfect pairing for the coffee you'll need after this meal.
