2.0

Consistent and very good, P.G. Steakhouse for years has been among the top beef emporiums on Long Island. It still is. The look hasn't changed much over the decades, full of earth tones, dark wood and a clubby style.

But what counts here is the meat, and that's delectable, as you'd expect at a restaurant where the original P.G., Paul Grenewig, presided. He's a veteran of Peter Luger. And this still is a family-run spot.

The menu contains few surprises, which is a virtue. Go for the sliced tomatoes and onions, the jumbo lump crabmeat cocktail, the shrimp cocktail, or the herring with sour cream. Then enjoy a thick juicy porterhouse, for two or for three. The "heavy cut" rib steak is exactly that, and both the filet mignon and the chopped steak are recommended, too. Flank any of them with creamed spinach, sauteed onions, a baked potato, onion rings or home fries. Leave a little room for the cheesecake or the pecan pie.

Leave happy.
