I decided to have brunch somewhere new for a change and was pleased to discover Peter's Gourmet Diner. There was a wait outside, but, at least tables of 2, didn't wait long. They have a huge front room, and then a second addition in the back - covered with plastic to block rain and snow, and allows a view of the surrounding buildings (nothing glamorous, but you can tell you are outside.)
Personally, I thought the inner-room was nicer - brighter, more open feel, but the back room wasn't bad.
The menu is huge, you'll probably take a while to find something, and they have a bar to top off your brunch, and these drinks are real - whereas the Gracie Diner (also good) gives you a slightly watered-down drink, this place might just set your head spinning!
Service was pretty good, waitresses were nice, food came fairly quickly. Wasn't the best I've ever had, but it was pretty darn good.
Brunch price, however, was a bit higher than Gracie's which also offers the booze-brunch. I guess that's the price you don't pay for a little water in your drink.
