Peter Luger Steakhouse (2001-2003) in New York: Dining Posted September 6, 2002 I have a friend who's a butcher. An old timer. A big time old timer. Wears a gold cleaver for a tie bar. I once asked him who has the best steak in New York. He said Peter Luger, because every supplier will give them the first buy, and they always buy the very best of its kind that is available. He was talking about the Porterhouse. He said the only way to get a steak of the quality of Luger's, and to try your hand at prepearing it, is to buy one from them.
