Yeah, if you’re out carousing on New Year’s Eve, the odds are excellent you’ll need some sustenance on New Year’s Day, so here’s your recovery list:

~ABSINTHE BRASSERIE & BAR~ will be open (for the first time in a very long time) on New Year’s Day for brunch. The menu includes some à la carte barbecue dishes, like sirloin steak tips, cedar plank Arctic char, housemade Moroccan aged cheddar bratwurst, sides like mac-n-cheese, and of course selections from the raw bar. Bar manager Carlos Yturria will have some special cocktails to help with the vice on your head, like the Aftermath (beef confit tomato juice, Fresno chili, Bloody Mary spice, lemon juice), and a selection of Champagne cocktails. 11am-3pm. Reservations: 415-551-1590.

You can check out the new addition to ~BRENDA’S FRENCH SOUL FOOD~ while recovering with some traditional New Year’s Day dishes of black-eyed peas and collard greens (for money and luck!).

In North Beach, ~DON PISTO’S~ will be hosting a pajama party, serving all-day brunch until 9pm! Mmmm, their evil burger would be a delicious cure.

You’ll be able to get your donut on at ~DYNAMO DONUT~ from 10am-4pm.

Over on the Embarcadero, ~LAFITTE~ will be serving brunch dishes like their Dagwood sandwich, poached eggs and polenta, French pan omelets, and their famous foie gras BLT. For reservations, call 415-839-2134.

~LONG BAR~ on Fillmore is going to be serving classic brunch dishes like corned beef hash and huevos rancheros, along with a pulled pork Benedict, pumpkin French toast, and savory options like a burger and Buffalo chicken meatballs. Served 11:30am-4pm (and this marks the launch of brunch service every Sat-Sun).

In the Mission, ~MAVERICK~ will be offering their regular (and always hearty!) brunch menu from 10am-4pm. Hello, migas. Call 415-863-3061.

Both locations of ~PIZZERIA DELFINA~ are going to be open on New Year’s Day from 12pm-8pm, serving hangover drinks, tons of fried stuff, and meatball heroes (and let me tell you, those meatballs heroes are hella good)!

This sounds right up my alley: ~PRESIDIO SOCIAL CLUB~ will be open all day, serving a special brunch cocktail called “The Ruger” (a Bloody Mary made with hot pork consommé and a spicy tomato mixer).

Need some fresh air? ~SCOMA’S~ is going to have a three-course New Year’s Day lunch menu for $30 per person, with dishes like their famous Dungeness crab cakes and hearty clam chowder, and it includes a Bloody Mary (menu selections here). Complimentary valet parking, score. Served 11:30am-3:30pm. 415-771-4383.
