The finer things in life should touch our insides as well as our outside. Visual and cosmetic finer things are there to look attractive, add style and make life easier. Let’s not leave out our taste buds and stomachs. Those that live in New York City are in the middle of a myriad of the finer things in life. Within easy reach are some of the finest specialty shops, galleries, first class jewelers and restaurants in the world. If you don’t live in New York, pay close attention as we introduce you to one of the finest steak restaurants you will ever find, Peter Luger Steak House.
Take a Bite and Enjoy a Finer Slice of the Big Apple
If you’ve never heard of Peter Luger’s fine restaurant, it deserves your attention. The specialty is the porterhouse built for two. It arrives at your table sizzling on a hotplate that is a little tilted to one side. The tilt allows juices to gather on the edge for your dipping pleasure. Luger’s is well known for these perfectly cooked, custom ordered steaks but fans of the restaurant are also in love with the Canadian bacon appetizer. This delicacy is by far the thickest slab of bacon you have ever seen and the flavor of the first bite takes you out of this world. Both of these meat choices are finer slices of life. On your visit to Peter Luger’s, the finer slice recommends side orders that include the tasty German style potatoes and beefsteak tomatoe and onion topped with Luger’s Own Steak Sauce.
No phase of a meal at this establishment disappoints you in the least, including dessert. Hot fudge sundaes, ice cream or chocolate cake and their famous German Schlag. Not your everyday menu item, Schlag is a delicate German whipped cream that you can order either to top your dessert, or by itself with an enticing splash of chocolate underneath. Your taste buds should be at full attention by now.
Visitors and Tourists Take Note
If you are a frequent visitor or are planning a trip to the Big Apple, schedule your dinner or mid-afternoon lunch at Luger’s. Call ahead as reservations are hard to get. If you are nowhere near New York, at least find the best steak restaurant in your area or better yet, buy yourself a delectable porterhouse steak, a bottle of Luger’s steak sauce and a fine set of steak knives to reproduce the experience at home.
The finer slice of life is not always about material possessions, it is simply the satisfaction of a full, enjoyable life. A top quality steak house is one of those rare gems.
For your convienience, I’ve include a few links to products to create your own finer porterhouse experience.
Peter Luger Steak Sauce
Peter Luger’s old fashioned Steak Sauce is not only great on steak, but also served on slabs of red ripe tomatoes. The taste is somewhere between cocktail sauce and traditional steak sauce – it’s spicy with horseradish being a ingredient with a rich brown color.
