I love steak….my blog is going to be about steak. Steak houses will be my first blog. I recently went to my favorite steakhouse in Brooklyn, NY…Peter Lugers. By far the best steak I have every had, although on a teacher’s salary, I do not get to go as often as I would like to. I try to get out there twice a year. I usually start off before dinner with a drink at the bar, that in itself is like watching a great cable channel. What is great about the atmosphere is that there are people dressed up, as well as people dressed down and both dress attires work. After a stiff drink at the bar while waiting for the reservation, steak is not too far away. The appetizer of choice for me is always the “healthy” bacon. It is ordered by the strip and cooked to perfection. Peter Lugers has their own wine that works great throughout the whole meal, red of course!!! The steaks come in servings of 1, 2, 3, and 4….steak for 4 is two steaks for two….not brain surgery there. My favorite side dish is the creamed spinach, it is served for the table but I can usually finish a side dish on my own. Other sides are usually oredered like the potatoes and things but I for the most part stick to the spinach. The steak is served in a butter sauce that when you dip the steak into it, it is fantastic. Peter Lugers sauce is on the table in a bottle, but it would be a shame to use it in the restaurant when the steak is served. You have to be there to really appreciate that comment, but trust me, you don’t want to use the sauce when you are there, although I would recommend there sauce as a marinade when cooking at home, I have tried it and I love it. All that being said, I love steak and Peter Lugers rocks. In my next blog I will try to cover some local steak houses that I love to frequent. Let me know your thoughts on some of your favorite steak houses….and by all means if you have every been to Peter Lugers, please share your thoughts, I would love to hear your thoughts. Cheers!!!
