Village Voice's Description

Every year, this venerable Brooklyn steakhouse (it's been open since 1887) enters the conversation about who has the best steak in New York City.
Credit for that goes to its porterhouse for two, a mammoth serving of dry-aged beef, buttered, charred and dripping with juices. Of course, if you're not willing to drop a day's wages on a meal, the famed Luger Burger (a hulking beef patty, onions and American cheese on a sesame seed bun, available with a side of almost comically thick bacon) is a good option.
It's only available during lunch, when the corporate crowd fills the restaurant's two stories equipped with company cards. If you want a dinner reservation, it's best to call about a month in advance. Older men in suits and women in dresses arrive at night, handing their keys to the valet before heading inside. It's seriously old-school, all polished wood and chandeliers and gruff waiters in bow-ties. That is to say, it hasn't changed much over the last hundred years or so, just the way the regulars like it.—Keith Wagstaff

Tips from foursquare

  • This decidedly old-school steakhouse is a rite of passage for Wall Street traders willing to shell out $88 for the signature porterhouse for two. Lunch reservations are doable, but bring cash.

    Nothing better than a Luger steak on a Sunday night with hash browns. -Jill Zarin, Real Housewives of New York City

    I crave the bacon with their special tomato sauce at least twice a week, a must-go to restaurants at least once in your life. If you're in Manhattan it's just a short train ride to Williamsburg. -Alex

    Order the bacon.

    Girls happened here. Jessa meets Thomas-John's parents at this steakhouse and regales the group with tales of her rehab-attending past.
