“Old beef to settle with restaurant”

That headline above has about as many puns as the Daily News could stuff in. And there are a few more larded in the story, via John Marzulli:

Old beef to settle with restaurant

The aged beef at Peter Luger Steakhouse was treated better than a 66-year-old former “salad man” who is suing the famed Brooklyn restaurant for age discrimination.

Jose Peguero claims he was ridiculed by younger co-workers, who called him “rotten old man” and urged him to retire.

After complaining to Peter Luger co-owner Marilyn Spiera about the alleged mistreatment, Peguero was demoted to “shrimp and onion peeler,” according to the complaint filed in Brooklyn Federal Court, which seeks unspecified monetary damages.

He was later fired. A message left at Peter Luger was not immediately returned.

Maybe if John had asked for a reservation?
