5 Spots for a Super Fun New Year’s Day Brunch

Brunching on a Wednesday? Sure, why not. Brunching on New Year’s Day? Absolutely a must. Whether you’re looking for a hair of the dog or just a reason to celebrate all things 2020, there are a few restaurants where you can get more than just your average brunch. Feast on all the pancakes and mimosas you want, but at least do it in style at one of these spots.


Bar Mezzana

Head over to Bar Mezzana for their 4th annual Magnum P.I. Brunch from 11am-3pm. Hawaiian shirts aren’t a requirement, but they probably should be. In addition to tiki cocktails and brunch specials, there will be magnums to celebrate. Or, um, cure your NYE hangover. Either way, it’s a reason to celebrate 2020 in style.

360 Harrison Ave, Boston, MA 02118



Have you tried Champy, Jenny’s sparkling wine? If not, get right over to Scampo on New Year’s Day to have a glass. The restaurant  is offering a New Year’s Day brunch from 10:00am – 2:30pm. Their special brunch menu will pair perfectly with Champy so you can celebrate 2020 in style.

215 Charles St, Boston, MA 02114



If there’s one reason to go to Coppersmith for brunch, it’s their Bloody Mary bar. Pack your beverage with all the pickled vegetables, sauces, spices, and garnishes you want. It’s the ultimate hair of the dog, and when it’s DIY, it’s even more fun. Get a little weird with some pickled green beans or Korean BBQ sauce, or make it fancy with bacon and shrimp. Whatever you choose, it’s a surefire way to refuel and recharge from your New Year’s Eve festivities.

40 W 3rd St, South Boston, MA 02127


Island Creek Oyster Bar

Need to “shuck” off the rest of 2019? Head to ICOB for a feast of a la carte hangover cures like donut baskets, eggs benedict (with a lobster tail!), or lobster tortilla soup. Need another reason to convince you to go? Try their “Grand Macque Burger” with American cheese, special sauce, and shoestring fries. Because who doesn’t want fries the day after NYE?

500 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215


Myers & Chang

A Dim Sum brunch may just be all you need to kick off 2020. Move over waffles and pancakes — the real brunch MVP looks a little like bao and dumplings. Too tired to leave the couch? Understandable. That’s why Myers + Chang is offering a Hangover Takeout Package on Caviar. What’s in it for you? A soy-glazed bacon & egg banh mi. No other details necessary. 

1145 Washington St, Boston, MA 02118


Tiger Mama

We may or may not have saved the wildest brunch for last. If you’ve saved enough energy to get rowdy a second day in a row, Tiger Mama’s Drag Brunch is where you need to be. From 12-4pm, load up pina colada french toast, magical donuts, and Tiger McMuffins…and of course, entertainment from the fabulous dancing queens. Might we suggest wearing a little glitter to the party? 

1363 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02215
