Steak for lunch

I was anxious to blog this last night but it seems that Blogger is finally just back up now! Yesterday I had the great pleasure of lunching at Peter Luger in Brooklyn with two friends and a special multi-talented guest - the ulterior epicure. It was a good time and I am convinced more than ever that I need to go to Paris this fall - sorry, a bit non sequitur but let's move on to the food...

The hamburger was pretty much bleeding, the creamed spinach was at least 95% fat, the french fries were thick, and the steak tender. I'm not really one to ever order steak, because it's just too much of one hunk of thing for me. I'd gladly take a small tasting size portion but any bigger, and it gets pretty monotonous. So I can't form a real opinion on just HOW good the steak was. Now, desserts, I can do. Here, the strudel could have been more flaky and crusty, and the apple chunks were too crunchy and raw. And I guess none of us have enough sweet tooth to finish the bowl of schlag that comes with it. I did finish the ice cream, though.

Speaking of lunch, did you catch me on Oh Joy!'s lunch series yesterday? :)

  10. I found your lovely blog from the Oh Joy post and have to say that you have exquisite taste. I moved out of New York last year and your entries have conjured up a lot of nostalgia. If you ever put together a favorites list for coffee shops and restaurants in the city, I would follow it religiously on a visit back to the city.
