Peter Luger's: The hype

Peter Luger's (May 2010)
178 Broadway, Brooklyn

Sameer:Porterhouse (Rare) - Very nicely cooked rare, great color, great juice. A little dry for my liking, and little depth of flavor. A simple piece of meat very well cooked, but lacking the kind of flavor complexity necessary to differentiate for me.

Jeff:Porterhouse for Three (Rare) - I thought our cut of meat was substandard: unevenly marbled, and oddly shaped in some parts. Still, well aged, and well flavored for all its lumps. I've had PL before, and I've had it better.  This would be 3 cows, but I am factoring the highs I have experienced in the past.
