NYC’s Famed Peter Luger Steak House Just Opened Its First Restaurant Outside the US in Tokyo

Holy Cow! After more than 130 years, the historic Peter Luger Steak House has opened its first restaurant outside the US. The new three-story eatery, which started welcoming guests Thursday, occupies a prime position in the food-centric city of Tokyo, Japan. The New York icon has just two other steakhouses—one in Brooklyn that opened in 1887, the other in Long Island that was established in 1960—but has never even expanded into Manhattan, let alone overseas.

The City’s Only South African Restaurant and Bar

If New York City is a graveyard of unrealized dreams, it’s also a maze of hidden passageways leading to new rooms, where one can reinvent oneself in the wake of thwarted ambitions. In the early two-thousands, an aspiring stage actress named Suzaan Hauptfleisch left South Africa for Manhattan. Broadway never called, and this town’s culinary scene is all the better for it. The city has seven thousand four hundred and thirty working actors. It has exactly one South African restaurant and bar: Hauptfleisch’s Kaia, an Upper East Side institution that, in its eleven years, has supplied New Yorkers with 7.2 million dollars’ worth of South African wine, mostly by the glass.
