NYC Brunch Whether you’re ringing in 2014 from a hotel ballroom, a Meatpacking club, or a cozy staycation at home, New Year’s Day brunch is one of both necessity and excess. It is likely the first meal that you will consume in the New Year ($1 pizza from the street corner doesn’t count), so it would behoove you to set the tone for the following 365 days with a delicious and decadent dish or two. New Year’s Day brunch is ideal for nursing a champagne headache and catching up on last night’s antics and gossip, so eat your hearts out. From hair of the dog bottomless deals to more formal and festive fetes, here are the Bitches Who Brunch picks for New Year’s Day brunch in the Big Apple.

Bitches Who Brunch is the website Washingtonians and New Yorkers turn to when they want to know where to brunch, what to wear, and where to party. As one of Washington’s leading authorities on dining, fashion, and socializing, the site has recently expanded to cover New York City full-time, with the introduction to two Bitches in the City. Ally and Emily of Bitches Who Brunch New York give us their expert advice on where to brunch the morning after the year’s biggest party.
