Pete Wells gives Peter Luger's zero stars

I know there was a time the German fried potatoes were brown and crunchy, because I eagerly ate them each time I went. Now they are mushy, dingy, gray and sometimes cold. I look forward to them the way I look forward to finding a new, irregularly shaped mole.

We went in July. Remembered Luger’s being much better. Maybe it was nostalgia. The German potatoes were good but our steak was very unevenly cooked. My wife thought it was just ok - her first trip to Luger’s and has no interest in ever going back, especially given the price tag. My kids loved the steak.
