Meet Karl Zartler, the Peter Luger Steakhouse Waiter Who's Been There For 35 Years

Karl Zartler is head waiter at Peter Luger Steakhouse, one of New York City's oldest and best steakhouses. In this short profile video from our friends at Zagat, hear how Zartler started from the bottom at Peter Luger nearly 35 years ago in a very different New York City.

Karl Zartler has seen it all during his time at Peter Luger Steakhouse, yet he still arrives every day like it's his first on the job. The Austrian immigrant has made Peter Luger his home away from home since coming to New York City in 1972 and with the fun he's having, there's no plan to retire anytime soon.
