Profile

Brooklyn steak auteur Peter Luger has spawned more sequels than Rocky and Harry Potter combined; former head waiter Wolfgang Zwiener offered one of the first with his Park Avenue restaurant, a blockbuster beef palace which soon begat its own Tribeca follow-up. With a street-smart waitstaff apparently right out of central casting, the dramatic dining rooms at both locations resemble a prototypical NYC steakhouse stage set, complete with arched ceilings adorned with mosaic tiles. A parade of sizzling platters boast the menu’s star players, butter-drenched porterhouses in servings meant for two or more. But other cuts, like the tender, well-marbled rib eye, and a 3 ½ pound lobster deserve equally enthusiastic reviews. Supporting players don’t stray too far from the original script, either: Start with a piece of the thick, chewy bacon, with tasty cameos by creamed spinach and German hash-browned potatoes. Desserts like the slightly tart key lime pie blanketed with the signature schlag (dense, German-style whipped cream) guarantee a walloping good, if cholesterol-drunk, finish.
