Hopefully she’s not a zombie

In a rather unusual turn of events, a woman dining at essential Brooklyn steakhouse Peter Luger was bitten by a fellow diner yesterday afternoon, according to DNAInfo. The incident reportedly occurred around 4 p.m. on Monday, when the attacker bit a 50-year-old woman on the right forearm.

Multiple outlets report that the two women do not know each other, and the attack was unprovoked. After biting her victim, the woman fled the South Williamsburg restaurant and the victim was treated at the scene.

According to DNA, the owners of the restaurant were not present during the time of the incident. No arrests have been made.

The famed New York steakhouse opened in 1887, and is currently owned by Dan Turtel — a fourth-generation owner. Iconic dishes like a dry aged porterhouse are what still make Peter Luger one of the hardest tables to snag.
