Ow, what were you thinking? Here are some places to help heal you on New Year’s Day. ~CHAMBERS EAT + DRINK~ is offering a recovery brunch, along with requisite beverages from their three full bars on New Year’s Day. Brunch is served from 10:30am-3pm, and seating will be available by the pool, weather permitting. 601 Eddy St. at Larkin, 415-829-2316.

One of my favorite things to eat the morning after a big night out is chilaquiles, and one of the best makers of them in town, ~SANJALISCO~, will be open on New Year’s Day! I always go for the Veronica (with nopales). And there will be birria too! 901 S. Van Ness Ave. at 20th St., 415-648-8383.

~NAMU GAJI~ will be rocking a brunch menu of both sweet and savory options, many of them with their signature Korean-inflected flava. You’ll also find mimosas by the glass or pitcher, micheladas, and Bloody Marys. No reservations.

The Marina’s ~BIN 38~ is serving their “Classic Rock Sunday Brunch” on New Year’s Day, plus everyone who comes in between 11am-3pm gets a free mimosa or glass of bubbles. They’ve also got bottomless mimosas for $14. 3232 Scott St. at Lombard, 415-567-3838.

For a whole lotta pancakes, check out the pancake brunch at ~BLUESTEM BRASSERIE~. There are bottomless mimosas available, in addition to a whole slew of other cocktails, and a menu of non-pancake items, too. Take a look at the menu here.

Head out to the Sunset for a fried chicken and mimosa brunch at ~THE PIZZA PLACE ON NORIEGA~. Each plate comes with three pieces of chicken, potato salad, collard greens, and a biscuit from Devil’s Teeth Baking. Brunch starts at 12pm and goes until they run out. 3901 Noriega St. at 46th Ave., 415-759-5752.

For a fun and fancy time, ~CAMPTON PLACE RESTAURANT~ is offering a brunch menu with an Indian twist, like the local Dungeness crab naan with pullet egg, potatoes, and fines herbes relish ($28) or duck samosa with tomato butter ($24). There are also some more traditional brunch choices, too. All diners will receive a complimentary glass of bubbly, can’t argue with that.

~THE FRONT PORCH~ will be offering some of their great comfort classics to get you through the day, like chicken and waffles, po’ boys, and burgers. Their bar will be cranking out some good (and mighty important) liquid assistance, too. 11am-3pm.

~RICE PAPER SCISSORS~ is going to be serving brunch on New Year’s Day at Brick and Mortar in the Mission. From 11am-3pm, check out fried mochi dumplings, a breakfast banh mi, and pho. 1710 Mission St. at Duboce.

Head to Sausalito for lunch at ~POGGIO~, to make resolutions with a great view. They’ll be open for lunch and dinner, with plenty of pastas and recovery cocktails to keep you going.

Oakland’s ~HOPSCOTCH~ will have a selection of comforting brunch food on New Year’s Day, including a pork belly Benedict, hangover hash, and kimchee fried rice. Reservations are available. 1915 San Pablo Ave. at 19th, Oakland, 510-788-6217.

Don’t want to leave your bed? Get yourself back into shipshape with hangover cure kits from ~FLOUR & CO.~. The kits are $14 and include an English muffin sandwich, seasonal fruit salad, and Stumptown cold brew. They will be sold on December 31st, so pick one up and you’ll be all ready to take on the morning. 1030 Hyde St. at Pine, 415-992-7620.
