Peter Luger Steak House

Peter Luger's Steak House in Dumbo, Brooklyn, was established about a century ago in the style of a Bavarian beer hall with grumpy male waiters. You will eat very good juicy, medium-rare, greasy and tasty porterhouse steaks, creamy spinach (an acquired taste), fresh tomatoes and fried potatoes. I would drink a bottle of red wine to lower my cholesterols! A shrimp cocktail with horse-radish sauce is optional. No other choices are necessary.

The bad thing is that you will have to wait at least an hour or more for a table. Beware cash only for the very big tab. Steak-lovers go there very religiously.

Inside tip: I prefer to eat there for lunch ... no wait for tables and they offer a delicious juicy hamburger, French fries and a tall glass of beer. A bargain, too.

Afterwards, you can walk across the East River via the Williamsburg Bridge to Manhattan. What a sight.
