For the first time in 60 years, Michelin-starred New York institution Peter Luger Steak House is expanding, this time with a new location on the Las Vegas Strip, the company announced on Monday. The newest location will be inside Caesars Palace and is expected to open in late 2022.
This will be the restaurant’s first domestic unit outside of New York.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing Peter Luger to Caesars Palace. It was critical for us to be able to bring to Las Vegas the same menu, the same ambiance and — most important — the same quality beef that we are known for in New York, and Caesars was aligned with that vision,” said Amy Rubenstein, the president of Peter Luger, in a statement. “Our two iconic brands have rich and celebrated histories, and we could not imagine a better partner in Las Vegas.”
Peter Luger has been operating in New York City for nearly 135 years and currently has three locations.: the original location in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood; one in Great Neck, N.Y.; and a third in Tokyo.
“Peter Luger Steak House is one of the great New York dining destinations, providing world-class food and service for over a century,” said Caesars Entertainment regional president Sean McBurney in a statement. “Just like Caesars Palace, Peter Luger is timeless and inimitable. We are thrilled to make a home for Peter Luger on The Strip, and we know our guests will love the opportunity to experience this legendary New York tradition in the heart of Las Vegas.”
Meats at Peter Luger must meet a high standard. The family owners follow in matriarch Marsha Forman’s tradition of visiting the New York meat markets, where they hand-select from an already narrow selection of USDA Prime beef. The chosen meat is brought to the on-site dry-aging facilities.
Peter Luger is the latest restaurant to make the jump to Las Vegas. Just last week, Martha Stewart announced her first restaurant venture on the Las Vegas Strip, in the same casino as Lisa Vanderpump’s latest restaurant.
