Peter Lugar Steakhouse Review Saga


Where is the love?



It started with Peter Luger given zero stars in brutal New York Times review


The blistering critique by the newspaper’s restaurant critic Pete Wells plunges in the steak knife — describing the South Williamsburg eatery’s porterhouse as “far from the best New York has to offer.”


“And after I’ve paid, there is the unshakable sense that I’ve been scammed,” Wells wrote on Tuesday under the headline “Peter Luger used to sizzle. Now it sputters.”


Then Peter Luger owners rip brutal, zero-star New York Times review


“We know who we are and have always been. The best steak you can eat. Not the latest kale salad,” Peter Luger co-owner Jody Storch said Tuesday in the wake of the blistering critique by Times restaurant reviewer Pete Wells.


And Defiant New Yorkers and hungry tourists flock to Brooklyn's Peter Luger steakhouse the day after stinging zero-star review and say it DOES have the best steak in town


Diners were happy with their meals and said the Times' rebuke was unfair

Veteran waiters said the review was 'too personal' and downright 'wrong'

Among customers were tourists from Japan, Florida and Australia

They all enjoyed their food and said the prices, though steep, were justified

Retired NYPD cops and long-standing customers with Peter Luger credit cards were also there to show their support
