Madame Tussauds New York's Famous Figures Assist with Restaurant Social Distancing

Madame Tussauds famous wax figures have filled seats of a historic family-owned New York restaurant ahead of increased occupancy.

Governor Andrew Cuomo has given the greenlight for New York City restaurants to increase occupancy to 35 percent and New York's Peter Luger Steak House is bringing in a bit of star power to ensure guests continue to follow social distancing safety measures.

The iconic steakhouse has teamed up with the world’s greatest wax museum, Madame Tussauds New York, to fill empty seats with A-Listers and offer patrons an unforgettable dining experience. Diners are invited to toast with Jon Hamm at the bar, enjoy a moment of elegance with Audrey Hepburn, or share a laugh with Jimmy Fallon. Al Roker is also waiting to direct diners to the second floor.

“The restaurant industry is vital to New York City's economy, and it's been particularly hard hit this past year. We're excited to welcome diners back indoors at 35%, and thought this would be a fun, safe way to fill some of the seats that need to remain empty as we continue to fight the pandemic. It has been wonderful working with the fabulous team at Madame Tussauds New York."

Daniel Turtel Vice President of Peter Luger

The New York City icons wax figures have remained at Peter Luger Steak House until Monday, March 1.
