What’s the Corkage Fee? 

According to New York Magazine, Peter Luger does not offer this service to guests. Fortunately, Peter Luger offers an extensive collection of fine wines to choose from onsite.

Does Peter Luger have a Michelin Star? 

Yes, Peter Luger Steak House in Brooklyn lost its Michelin star.

Why did this happen? The loss of the Michelin star for Peter Luger might be attributed to changing perceptions of what constitutes a fine-dining establishment in the modern era. The steakhouse, which has been described as a “cash-only joint with overpriced plates and rude waiters,” may no longer align with contemporary standards of fine dining.

Additionally, Peter Luger received a zero-star review from The New York Times three years prior, indicating that there might have been signs of declining recognition for some time. Despite the loss of the Michelin star, Peter Luger remains confident in its offerings and identity. The general manager, David Berson, emphasized the restaurant’s commitment to serving the best steak and showed gratitude to their loyal customers. Berson also made a remark contrasting their signature steak with the “latest kale salad,” highlighting the restaurant’s traditional approach to dining.

New Menu Items?

Peter Luger rarely adds new items to its menu. But in 2023, they’ve introduced a tantalizing new dish that’s got everyone talking: a steak sandwich!

David Berson, the fourth-generation operator and general manager of the restaurant, revealed the idea of a steak sandwich had been simmering in the back of their minds for years. The challenge? Crafting a sandwich that felt like it had always been a part of the timeless legendary menu. After countless trials and taste tests, they’ve perfected the recipe and are ready to release it into the public.

A traditional steakhouse experience.

The sandwich boasts a generous 8-ounce portion of USDA Prime New York strip steak, cooked to perfection. It’s then topped with caramelized onions and a zesty horseradish spread. The sandwich is served on a toasted roll that’s reminiscent of the onion bread from Luger’s complimentary bread basket.
