One of the world’s most celebrated steakhouses, Michelin star awarded, Peter Luger, in Brooklyn, New York, has been serving the finest USDA Prime Beef for over 125 years. Peter Luger Extra Thick Cut Bacon was originally served exclusively for employee meals. “It was a big slab and they used to hock off a piece and throw it on the broiler. The Wall Street guys would come for lunch and they would see the waiters eating lunch in the dining room, and it became the ‘in’ thing to ask for. If you knew to ask for the bacon, that was how we knew you were regular.” Regulars ordered it to be served with their tomato and onion salad, on top of their Peter Luger Hamburger or, as is often the case, as a standalone dish. It wasn’t until the 90s that bacon became a menu item.
