The pandemic has forced restaurants to roll with the punches and get creative in order to survive, and that includes a New York institution: as Eater reports, the iconic old-school Williamsburg steakhouse Peter Luger is now offering delivery for the first time in its nearly 133-year history.

The restaurant, which opened in 1887 and was recently the recipient of a controversial zero-star review from the New York Times’ Pete Wells, is open for both takeout and delivery by phone (718-387-7400) and through Caviar. Delivery is currently available in Brooklyn and Queens, and manager David Berson told Eater it will be available in Manhattan “in a few days.”

Diners will be able to order staples like the porterhouse, the thick-cut Luger bacon and the dry-aged burger, as well as select wines and raw steaks from the restaurant’s dry-aging room. Delivery is available between 11:45 a.m. and 8:45 p.m. daily. The steakhouse asks that you “please give plenty of time” for large butcher-shop orders, as they’ll be cut to order.

“We look forward to opening our doors again after the crisis,” the restaurant says in a message on its website. “In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy, and we look forward to hearing from you.”
