For this review, Times & # 39; restaurant critic Pete Wells pulled out his own steak knife and butchered Peter Luger. And seriously, it's brutal.
"Peter Luger used to sour. Now it's sputtering," the story was overwritten.
"I know there was a time when the German fried potatoes were brown and crispy because I eagerly ate them every time I went," Wells wrote in his review.
"Now they are mushy, dingy, gray and sometimes cold. I look forward to them as I look forward to finding a new, irregularly shaped mole." [1
The salads, he said, are "drippy," shrimp cocktails similar to "cold latex dripped in ketchup," and $ 17 slices of tomatoes "taste like 1979." b [19659009Men'sreactiontoWellcriticalcriticshavehavehavebeconsideredtrendingoverthewholeMangeserutto agree with Wells.
"Destructive Review," tweeted another Wells fan. "@pete_wells has a beautiful and crushing way of words, and I'm a little heartbroken. But this speaks to me … because the hard truth is that he's absolutely right."
Despite Peter Luger's loyal fans, Wells simply does not see what they are so in love with.
"The restaurant will always have its loyalists," Wells wrote. "They will say no one goes to Luger for the sole, no one goes to Luger for the wine, no one goes to Luger for the salad, no one goes to Luger for the service. The list goes on and becomes more difficult to swallow before you start wondering who really needs to go to Peter Luger, and start believing that the answer is no. "
