The Bowery Diner impressed us when we recently dropped by for a dinner. Well, now they are getting into full diner mode with the launch of breakfast and lunch service. Patrons in the AM can enjoy standards like pancakes and French toast, while lunchtime visitors can scarf down snacks like French onion soup and burgers. Brunch is also being introduced to the restaurant, which will offer fare like confit duck hash to weekend diners.
The big question on everyone's mind? Will they serve pie before 5 PM. Black Book writer Steve Lewis recently dropped by at 4:30 PM, and was refused pie because it technically wasn't available until 5. He had to settle for donuts, which will in fact be on the lunch menu (212-388-0052).
