After you ring in 2015 on Wednesday night, you might wake up hungry to start the new year off right– or perhaps looking to soak up a bit of that excess champagne. And where better to do that than over brunch?
Here are a few local spots that are open this Thursday, January 1:
12th Street Bar and Grill
Where: 1123 8th Avenue
Eat: Sometimes it’s a tough call between sweet and savory, especially when there’s a red velvet waffle or grilled polenta and eggs to choose between. Whatever you pick, pair it with the sriracha breakfast cocktail, which has grapefruit, lime, and tequila, and is just the spicy kick to a fresh year.
Where: 501 11th Street, 718-788-1810
Eat: Just try to resist the tentacles of the sautéed Rhode Island squid omelet, with spinach, celery root remoulade, and butternut squash ($14). Just note, it’s cash-only at brunch!
Where: 434 7th Avenue, 718-369-3144
Eat: The $27 prix fixe menu includes an hour of bottomless brunch cocktails (get the margarita!), and choices that include chilaquiles and a chicken torta.
