I’d have to say that my favorite famous Peter is Peter Sellers. Hey Kelly … who’s your favorite famous Peter? Kelly: “Peter Rabbit”. The reason we’re sharing is because Peters’ Diner, complete with gluten-free menu, has a wall decorated with photos of famous Peters. AND, the two owners are both named Peter! This bright, cheery, and hip upper east side gourmet diner will have you running three avenues from the 82nd street 6 train stop to indulge in some long lost breakfast favorites. I had myself an order of Eggs Benedict. Poached eggs on toasted white gf bread topped with hollandaise sauce .. mmm, fat calorie heaven! They get their bread from Sterks Bakery in Ontario, Canada, my homeland; a favorite of our gf friends up north (note: Sterks bread contains corn). The gf pancakes are from a Pamela’s mix and so delightful to devour with friends at a weekend brunch get together. Speaking of your friends, Peters’ Gourmet Diner is a carb-conscious establishment, so your protein-prone pals will appreciate the “net gram carbs” measurements indicated under every item on the menu. Unfortunately, the syrup they provide is table-style, which contains corn .. maybe we can all politely pester them for maple?
Our first trip to Peters’ was breakfast-only, but we’ll be back soon to check out the extensive lunch and dinner gf offerings like pasta, sandwiches, and disco fries! That’s right, gluten-free gravy on french fried potatoes!! Another long lost favorite …
