Peter Luger And Madame Tussauds Team Up For Pandemic-Era Dystopian Dining Experience


As a vegetarian and automatonophobic, I can not say {that a} steakhouse populated by wax collectible figurines is one thing I would willingly stroll into. However I admire the way in which that Peter Luger has so deftly leaned into our dystopian actuality and delivered a pleasant surrealistic panorama by way of a collaboration with Madame Tussauds. It is like that one Black Mirror episode every season that is supplied in an nearly regular, cheerful-seeming universe the place one thing’s just a bit bit off. Sinister, even. On this case, it is wax mannequins portraying diners in a restaurant the place actual people are not allowed to be close to one another due to a lethal virus raging internationally.

That is life now.

Madame Tussauds

In a press launch immediately, despatched forward of indoor eating reaching 35% capability within the metropolis this Friday, Peter Luger Steak Home introduced the hassle, which can assist “guarantee visitors proceed to comply with social distancing security measures” by filling up the empty seats with wax portrayals of Jon Hamm, Audrey Hepburn, Jimmy Fallon, and Al Roker. (Charles Leisure Cheese was sadly unavailable.) The collectible figurines will not be there perpetually, although, they are going to solely be available by way of March 1st.

Like to see these two legendary New York Metropolis establishments coming collectively — for this reason we dwell right here, individuals.
