The Zagat Review
Voted NYC’s No. 1 steakhouse for the 32nd year in a row, this 1887-vintage Williamsburg chop shop remains a “long-standing Brooklyn tradition” thanks to its “sublime” steaks and “outstanding” sides; “no-nonsense” service and “German-beer-hall” decor ratchet up its “throwback” allure, but make sure to “bring plenty of cash” (it doesn’t take plastic) and, above all, “never mention the words ‘well done.’”
What To Order
For an affordable taste of that legendary dry-aged Luger beef, go at lunchtime and order the burger for $14 (served daily till 3:45PM).
