Bounce back with a New Year's Day recovery brunch
After a big New Year's Eve full of fun, you will need to recover. Here are a few places around town to have your first brunch of 2018!
Come join the "Darty" at the new darts bar in River North. For just $20, enjoy a bottomless brunch buffet. No brunch is complete without mimosas and a bloody mary. You can upgrade your brunch with an $18 Bottomless Rosé Mimosa + Bloody Mary Bar.
If you want to relax and watch the bowl game, come out to Commonwealth Tavern for a special "First Brunch of 2018," on New Year's Day. They will be showing the Citrus Bowl and offering a $3 Build-Your-Own Mimosa Bar with various fruits and juices and a $6 Build-Your-Own Bloody Mary Bar stacked with hot sauces, veggies, meats and more.
Another place to recover from the NYE festivities is Estelle's. They will be open from 5PM to 4AM on New Year's Day, so no need to rush out of bed. Their "hangover specials" include half-price burgers, $3.50 rotating draft beer, $4 Fernet Branca shots and a half-off happy hour special.
New year, new menu at Mercat la Plaxa. Try out some of their new menu items like the grilled wagyu beef served with herb butter and crispy potatoes. The New Year’s menu is offered starting at 5PM on December 31. Brunch is also available from 7AM-3PM that morning.
