Some loved their biscuits, others hated their unholy wait times but many took to Twitter upon discovering that Peels has unceremoniously closed. For starters, Claire Lobenfeld (@clairevlo) tweeted, “You served the only ketchup that didn’t trigger my mortuusequusphobia” (yes, there’s a word for fear of ketchup). We’ve gone ahead and rounded up some of the most extreme reactions to the loss of this Bowery brunch spot.
SO bummed @PeelsNYC is closing today I’ll miss the red eye gravy and biscuits so much! Damn.

“@PeelsNYC: We’ll miss everyone, but we have to say goodbye.” Wow, I can’t even imagine what the lease has to be there…
