A Review: Peels

Brunch is the best meal as a New Yorker.  How can you resist lazy afternoons spent indulging in rich foods, coffee, cocktails, and gossip?  Peels, located on Bowery, opened last summer by the team at Freemans, a Lower East Side favorite.  The country kitchen feel is highlighted by big picture windows, bright white walls, and wooden tables.  Arrive early or put your name in while you take a walk around Noho with your crew, as the wait can be rather long.  Try one of their fresh baked pastries to start.  Your low carb diet is almost impossible to follow with the temptations at Peels.  The Pecan Sticky Bun is fluffy, sweet, and a great balance to a side order of sausages.  With a Southern inspired twist on the menu, enjoy the Build-A-Biscuit option, which can include eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, fried chicken, avocado, and cheddar cheese.  Each item costs $6 or less to add on to your buttery biscuit.  The Peels Biscuit & Gravy (toasted buttermilk biscuit, poached eggs, sausage gravy) is a must-order for a creamy and filling dish from the sandwich menu.  Notice the indie rock music that plays quietly under the chatter of diners trying to piece together the details from last night’s debauchery.  The crowd ranges from pretty young things to parents visiting from the burbs.  If you’re looking for comfort food to soak up Saturday night’s sins, and have also accepted that you’ll never be a size 2, spend your Sundays devouring biscuits at Peels.  Peels. 325 Bowery.
