Peter Luger as a vegetarian?


Friends have made reservation for group at Peter Luger. I want to go (to hang out w/friends), but just checked out the menu, they really don't have much of a menu. Just steak and sides. I'm okay w/eating salad, but am I better off skipping this?

  1. You've seen the menu, isn't this a decision only you can make? Are you okay having a just a salad and possibly some potatoes and dessert? How much do you want to hang out with your friends? It certainly won't be a memorable meal for you.

      Sometimes restaurants are acccomodating and will have unlisted stuff. Does PL or is it just what is on the menu.

        What you see is what you get at Luger. It's an old school steakhouse. They will accommodate you with bread, salad, creamed spinach and potatoes.

        1. re: reatard

          creamed spinach is often made with chicken stock. just in case ask before ordering it...

    2. Do them a favor and stay home. You sitting there picking at a salad while they tuck into big steaks will just cast a pall over the evening.

        and the salad isn't even a salad, if i remember correctly--it's some slices of tomato and onion. and if the sides are chicken brothy spinach and meaty potatoes, you might be better off skipping. you'd do much better just about anywhere, including meat-intensive diner across the street.

        1. Call and ask if there's anything off-menu they can do for you.

              I take it you're referring to the vegetarian tasting menu.

            2. Peter Luger's is not a place for a vegetarian. Join them at a more veggie friendly restaurant in the future.
