I've been considering a trip out there for the Burger Joint alone.

Please, help me add another check.
(I just put one down two nights ago, by the way)

I know everyone is into pork and raw fish these days, but don't forget Peter Luger's, the best steak I'ver ever eaten. And the waiters are older and grumpier than at the old Berghoff.

Brigham said...

Oh I don't forget Peter Luger's and I hold it above nearly all other meals I've had here. What I thought I said in the post that I didn't say is that this is a list of restaurants I've been to more than once.

Should I add the one visits? Maybe that'll be another list.
