From the Hamptons to the Gold Coast, Long Island knows how to do upscale right. Sure, the term has been abused by some in the restaurant business, but there is no mistaking the cream of the crop from those billing themselves as “upscale casual.” These are the places we dine when nothing but the best will do. We bring you the Best Upscale Restaurant on Long Island!
Long Islanders Voted Peter Luger’s in Great Neck Best Upscale Restaurant on Long Island!
1 Peter Luger’s
255 Northern Blvd., Great Neck. 516-487-8800. www.peterluger.com
The original Peter Luger’s in Brooklyn is celebrating their 125th year in business, but thankfully this steak house—truly a cut above the rest—has a Great Neck location for those looking to join in the celebration with one of their carefully selected USDA prime steaks dry aged on premises. The service is famously brusque, but not pretentiously so—it’s more like, who needs small talk when there is a feast at hand? Even more famous, of course, is that steak. And it’s true—there really is nothing else quite like it.
