There are few pleasures in life that come close to comparing with the sophisticated taste, juicy texture and melt-in-your-mouth tenderness of a top-notch, dry-aged prime cut of beef cooked medium rare at a high-end steakhouse. It’s a pleasure you should really enjoy at one of the best Steakhouses on Long Island.
Peter Luger in Great Neck Won Best Steakhouse on Long Island!
255 Northern Blvd.
In a time when steakhouses seem to branch out to every city and casino, Long Island steak lovers know we are blessed to have the only sibling of the 1887 Brooklyn institution. In the past decade, legions of imitators have attempted to copy their signature dry-aged porterhouse but none come close. That’s because Luger’s carefully selects only the finest USDA prime beef, which is dry-aged in temperature-controlled coolers at the Brooklyn store. You don’t even need to scan the menu. Get the signature porterhouse, a plate of broiled hash browns and cream spinach…and pity the silly vegetarians.
