Steakhouses: Voted NYC's No. 1 steakhouse for the past 32 years, this circa-19th century Williamsburg establishment is a time-honored tradition for locals and visitors. Is this cash-only steak icon touristy? Yes. Old school? Absolutely. But sometimes, things are popular for a reason. Peter Luger has been serving up mammoth porterhouses and fried German potatoes on a nondescript corner in Williamsburg since 1887. The two-story structure has seen a lot of changes outside its doors – remember when Williamsburg was better known for vaguely sinister empty lots than pricey high-rise apartments? – but, inside, the tune remains the same. The hyper-masculine interiors and no-nonsense wait staff give the place and old-fashioned vibe, and the epic steaks keep customers coming back for more. Luger's has since opened a second location in Great Neck, Long Island, but come to the Brooklyn original for the full, meaty Monty.

Local Expert Maria Lisella Says:

Steakhouses: "Don't ask for a menu; only tourists do that. We recommend an order of the sliced tomatoes with house-made steak sauce, a slice of the riotously popular thick-cut bacon, creamed spinach and a two-person porterhouse cooked no more than medium rare. Save room for an ice cream sundae for dessert."
