Peter Luger Question [moved from Manhattan board]
3 of us are planning lunch or dinner at PL. Portion sizes in the US are much much bigger than here in the UK and I'm wondering if steak for 3 will be too much food for us, especially as we also want to try the bacon and one or two sides.
At PL is it acceptable for a party of 3 to order steak for 2 plus extras? Will we be asked to pay a supplement for the third person?

My experiences at Peter Luger have always been in large groups of 6-8 patrons......we have always ordered extras, e.g., the bacon, shrimp cocktail and sides....with Porterhouse less than the number of people at the table and I cannot recall ever being charged a service/sharing plate charge.
If your concern is crucial for your peace of mind, contact the restaurant directly with your query and I am sure they will provide you with the appropriate answer. I have never really been a fan of their sides...but I do highly recommend their bacon. Check their site for the menu before you pose your query to them....FWIW, you can never over order their steak. If you go for lunch, consider ordering the burger.....one of the best you will ever have.
Even though I like to suggest to others that they get gargantuan portions, last night 3 of us had a simple steak for 3. It was one of the best I have ever had there.
