Most sublime steak experience?

I'm a vegetarian thinking of making a once-in-a-lifetime exception for some unbelievably sublime steak in New York. I've never before tasted steak. Suggestions? Luger's? Kobe (wagyu?) beef somewhere?

  1. Hands down, peter luger's. Probably kobe or wafyu at the Homestead.

    1. Agreed, if you're going to break your fast, it should be at Luger's. Though, they don't have Kobe. The Homestead does.

      1. I broke my vegetarianism @ Peter luger's. It's definately the way to go.... But then again, I am an all or nothing kinda person. Good luck!

          how long had you been a vegetarian? did you get ill as a result, or was your body able to process it, no problem?

            I was a vegetarian for about 2 years and then ate only seafood for the two years following that. I didn't get sick at all.... but i also didn't heat a huge huge amount...but what i did sure was good... and i've been eating meat ever since.

        2. No, no, no, Sparks! Go to Sparks. Truly amazing.

            Agreed. Sparks. or for a great steak with a nicer, less steakhouse like atmosphere, try Strip House.
