The Peacock Loop Diner (6261 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-721-5555) opened its doors recently as the latest concept in Washington University's Delmar Loop development which also includes United Provisions. The new 24-hour greasy spoon's impact on the St. Louis food map is paramount, joining the select few other perpetually open dining destinations available in the area. We can already imagine ourselves slamming a milkshake alongside a burger after catching one of the Tivoli Theatre's midnight movies across the street.
