8 Ways to Cure Your New Year's Day Hangover

By Carissa Chesanek  |  December 30, 2013

After the ball drops and the all the champagne has been popped on New Year's Eve, the first day of 2014 might be tough one. To help ease your way back into the land of the living, here are eight places to start off a happy (and, if you're really going for it, healthy) New Year's Day.

  • City Hall

    Inside this two-level American bistro, you'll find an atmosphere as comfortable as the food it serves. Shrimp and grits in a cream sauce and sliced corn beef on rye with mustard are some of the hearty lunch choices, while honey-glazed chicken wings with creamy herb aïoli will do you right for dinner.

    2004 Biscayne Blvd.; 305-764-3130

  • The Front Porch Cafe

    You'll be able to get an inexpensive breakfast no matter what time you stumble into this Ocean Drive cafe, whose classic morning eats (served all day) include the Beach Breakfast Deluxe, with three eggs, potatoes and sausage, or French toast with orange zest topped with powdered sugar.

    1458 Ocean Dr.; 305-531-8300

  • Big Pink

    This South Beach staple is known for its huge menu that caters to both the midday hangovers and late-night cravings. With large plates like the taco salad made with spicy ground beef and barbecue burger topped with applewood-smoked bacon, plus those infamous buckets of hand-cut fries, it'll make you feel good as new in no time.

    Jumbo’s Restaurant

    This old-time diner has been around since the '50s, dishing up goods from the trusty fryer. It's a fine choice to fill up on hefty staples like the fried shrimp nuggets or the Bobby Burger Platter with lettuce, tomato and fries.

    7501 NW Seventh Ave.; (305) 751-1127

  • Miami Juice

    While greasy grub works for many, others prefer something on the lighter side after a long night, and this Sunny Isles cafe will provide the healthiest of eats to do the trick. Choose from various platters like tuna salad served with Berlin rice, as well as steamed vegetables and power-packed juices.

    18660 Collins Ave.; 305-945-0444

  • Dogma Grill

    You can sit inside or order to-go from the takeout window at this Upper East Side hot dog spot. Made-to-order items include the NYC Dog, with spicy brown mustard and sauerkraut, or the Burrito Dog doused with chili, bacon and sour cream, served in a flour tortilla.

    7030 Biscayne Blvd.; 305-759-8434

  • Over the Counter

    Right in the heart of Brickell, this rustic venue is a go-to for locals, whether they're hankering for traditional comfort food or something with a twist. But anyone looking for a post-party pick-me-up will benefit from the abundance of tasty options, like lamb belly sliders with mint and radicchio, or chilaquiles with tortilla chips, ranchero sauce and a sunny-side-up egg.

    1250 S Miami Ave.; 305-374-4612

  • The Federal Food, Drink & Provisions

    This new American comfort food joint hosts its official Hangover Brunch from 11:30 AM-3:00 PM this New Year's Day with unlimited mimosas ($18) and classic a la carte options. Diners can choose from a variety of hearty dishes like green eggs and ham made with poblano hollandaise sauce and buffalo pig wings served with cornmeal waffles.
