This paper compares Harry's Steakhouse in the financial district of Manhattan versus the older Peter Luger's in Brooklyn. The paper describes how Harry's caters to a traditional New York City clientele where the dishes are creatively prepared with unique flavourings. The paper contrasts this to Peter Luger's who caters to those who do not care very much about cholesterol, healthy eating and waistlines, but simply want to eat a juicy, fatty piece of beef.

From the Paper:

"For a group of people with diverse appetites seeking a comfortable steakhouse atmosphere, Harry's might be more appropriate. The dishes are creatively prepared, with whimsy, even irony. The idea of serving, for example, an entire jar of applesauce with fancy pepper seems almost to be making fun of traditional American cuisine, as it combines unusual seasoning with a staple like pork. Harry's is making fun of the 'real thing.' The real thing, the true and traditional steakhouse, is Peter Luger's. Peter Luger's offers few options for diners seeking lighter fare and a variety of flavorings, but for people wanting to relax in an unpretentious environment and throw any cares about eating in the nutritionally correct fashion, dining there is like taking a trip back in time, before celebrity chefs and cholesterol dominated the culinary headlines."
