- Peter Luger
178 Broadway, at Driggs Ave., Brooklyn, 718-387-7400
"Bow to the great purveyor of the best Porterhouse you will ever have in your life. No one can come close to this Valhalla of beef. Shame on you if you've never been!"
—GetinmyBelly, Gramercy Park.
"As a native New Yorker, I have eaten in nearly every steakhouse throughout the 5 boroughs and beyond. No one compares to Lugers. Always imitated but never duplicated, Lugers sets the standard that all others must look up to."

- The Strip House
13 E. 12th Street, 212-328-0000
"I've been to just about every 'great' steakhouse there is in NYC, but none have ever impressed me as much as the Strip House. The ambience, service, decor, and attention to detail are perfect. Add to all that the most luscious food you can imagine, (I have honestly fantasized about their chocolate cake)."
"The Strip House is truely a cut above the rest. From its great decor to its excellent and perfectly excuted menu that Rene Lenger and staff put out flawlessly night after night."
