Is it really that good?
Are there places that are just as good if not better in New York?
How much would a standard meal for 2 cost?

Lugar's is good, it is the same price as any steakhouse. It will run you up around 70 dollars (with apatizer) a plate that is without any wine. However I would most certainly go to the Post House, Smith & Wollensky's and even Mortons before Lugars because they are easier to get to, and I think they are better.

It is really good but I don't know if it's worth the price. With all the great restaurants in the city I'm sure there's a better value....but just typing this makes me want some steak! I went there in February for my aunt's 40th birthday....20 people.....probably cost her husband a couple grand. Yikes!

Luger's is very easy to get to. It is the first stop on the J train after it goes over the Williamsburg Bridge. A two block walk from there. It is excellent.

Other top notch steakhouses: Keens Chop House (36th Street) Dylan Prime (Laigh Street) Frankie & Johnny (8th Ave / 48th) Old Homestead (14th /9th Ave) Palm (West 52nd [?] Street)

I like Delmonico's a lot too. But make sure you sit in the casual bar area and not the stuffy dining room (although the dining room is worth a look).

I've been to several of the places mentioned, and they were positive experiences. Maybe consider Old Homestead for the neighborhood - worth the visit.

About Peter Luger: Over many years, I have never once been disappointed. Consistently good.
