I haven’t been to Luger’s in a year or two, so I can’t say whether or not there has been a slip in quality. But the idea that a chain steakhouse in downtown Brooklyn is going to cut into their business is pretty funny. Until Morton’s starts drawing crowds from Manhattan, its not a threat to Luger’s. (The corollary being that if Luger’s is losing business, it is to Manhattan steak houses.) Besides, as Bruni says, “no other steakhouse serves a porterhouse so breathtaking”.
