Like waking a hibernating bear, waking a dormant stomach causes violent growls that can only be silenced by a New York strip and 20 minutes of gentle patting.

Opened in 1972, Peter’s Restaurant totes an extensive breakfast-through-dinner menu of cross-cultural culinary creations home-cooked with flavors from the shores of the Mediterranean and the knolls of the Midwest. Greek specialties halt hunger with dishes such as the pastisio, an Athenian take on lasagna with seasoned ground beef and thick noodles hiding beneath a velvety béchamel blanket, and two skewers of pork souvlaki resting atop pita bread and tzatziki for a meal more classically Greek than the lemon chicken served on Hera and Zeus’s first date. Complimentary dessert, such rice pudding or ice cream, accompanies a number of Peter’s dinner dishes, finishing meals with a sweet exclamation point.
Morning munchers can get a punch of protein with 1 of more than 20 egg dishes and omelets or satiate sweet teeth with fresh-off-the-griddle blueberry pancakes. Lunchtime beckons a parade of handheld edibles, from a hot roast-beef sandwich to a hefty burger festooned in bacon, swiss cheese, and barbecue sauce.
