Legendary New York Steak House on its way to Las Vegas

Start spreading the news.

Peter Luger Steak House, a Brooklyn institution since 1887, moves to Sin City. The iconic restaurant will set up a “residence” at Caesars Palace by the end of 2022.

Popular with locals and tourists from all over the world, Peter Luger is known for generous portions of high-quality, dry-aged, USDA Prime steaks, as well as delicious (and equally massive) sides like creamy spinach, baked potatoes with sour cream and fried onion rings.

This Michelin-starred restaurant has consistently topped the Zagat ratings for steakhouses in New York since the inception of the survey. It is a favorite with foodies and was named one of “America’s Classics” in 2002 by the James Beard Foundation.

The spinach and steak sauce (served in a gravy boat on the table) have become such favorites that they hit the fridge shelves of supermarkets across the country.

One of the most popular items on the menu is the giant Porterhouse steak, which is cut off the bone. The meat is tender, marbled to perfection, and cooked to perfection before being topped with a spoonful of clarified butter.

The portions barely leave room for the unmissable dessert “Holy Cow Hot Fudge Sundae” served with a bowl of homemade blow (German for whipped cream).

“We are delighted to bring Peter Luger to Caesars Palace. Bringing the same menu, ambiance and – most importantly – quality beef that we are known for in New York City to Las Vegas was critical for us, and Caesars was aligned with that vision,” said Amy Rubenstein. , Peter Luger’s chairman when announcing the expansion. “Our two iconic brands have rich and celebrated histories and we couldn’t imagine a better partner in Las Vegas.”

The Brooklyn restaurant first opened 135 years ago as “Carl Luger’s Cafe, Billiards and Bowling Alley,” owned by Peter, while Carl worked in the kitchen. Although its opening predated that of the nearby Williamsburg Bridge (1903), the decor of the eatery hasn’t changed much over the years. With dark wood-panelled walls, a tin ceiling and simple oak tables, it retains the feel of a club-like Bavarian beer hall.

Caesars Palace’s new restaurant will be located near MR CHOW (an import from London) and will occupy a space that once housed Rao’s, which closed in November. It will join other celebrity chef restaurants in the resort, including Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen, Pronto by Giada, and Bobby Flay’s Amalfi.

Still, you wonder how Vegas will be able to recreate the brash, yet highly professional, New York waiters who helped create Peter Luger’s unique ambiance.
