After all of the New Year’s Eve revelry (debauchery, even?) welcoming in the new year with some hearty food and perhaps a drink (or two…) should be on the agenda. Here are a few spots around town to ring in the first day of the new year… or just take the sting off of the effects of the previous night’s fun. Happy New Year!
This corner Brewer’s Hill bar entering its 17th year is serving up a cooked to order brunch from 11 am – 3 pm. Additionally, get your mimosa, bloody mary, or Boh in bottomless form from 11 am – 2 pm for only $13 per person.
Opening at 10 am, the tavern will feature a full brunch menu as well as $3.50 Bloody Marys, screwdrivers and mimosas.
Mother’s Federal Hill Grille
From 9 am – 2 pm, nurse your NYE hangover with plenty of eggs, bacon, bloodies and mimosas on the deck.
Tavern on the Square
Playing the bowl games all day, Tavern on the Square is inviting New Year’s Day brunchers to don their pajamas for a comfy brunch from 11 am – 2 pm, featuring bottomless mimosas, bloodies, and sangria. Go for brunch in pj’s and get 15% off your check, but if you choose to wear onesie pajamas, as a shout out to some social media hilarity on the now-infamous Canton Neighbors Facebook page, you can also get “free water and a shot.” (Rest assured, those not in onesies, your water will be free too!).
B&O American Brasserie
From 8 am until 2:30 pm, B&O will be offering a Hangover Brunch followed by their regular dinner service from 5 until 10 pm. Initially we were a little astounded by anyone who might make it to brunch by 8 am on New Year’s Day, but the likes of monkey bread (with banana, caramel, and sea salt) for only $6 and the pork belly sammy (maple glazed pork belly, fried egg, smoked cheddar, frisee salad, brioche) for $15 might even entice us to get up a little earlier after the NYE celebrations.
In the heart of Canton, Portside will be offering their brunch menu from 11 am – 2 pm.
Wit and Wisdom
If you want a swanky start to the new year, there may be no better spot than Wit and Wisdom. Their New Year’s Day Brunch Buffet, for $69 ($30 for children 12 and under) is offered from 8 am to 3 pm and features organic scrambled eggs or homemade frittatas, local smoked salmon, artisan cheeses, chilled shellfish and plenty of hot entrees, as well.
Opening at 9 am on New Year’s Day, Blue Agave is offering bottomless mimosas, peach sangria, and blackberry sangria alongside their signature dishes like Tres Leches Pancakes and Huevos Rancheros.
This new spot in Canton Crossing has created a flurry of excitement since it has opened, and for good reason. With all-day everyday breakfast (in addition to lunch and dinner options) from their opening at 7 am until close at 10 pm, this Annapolis transplant has everyone raving about their crumbly, sweet homemade pop-tarts, decadently sauced chicken and waffles, and the savory shrimp and grits with their subtle heat. There may be a wait, but you can nurse that hangover in the foyer or outdoor seating area with a bloody from the bar garnished with a full thick slice of bacon, large spear of pickled asparagus, and a hearty rim of Old Bay.
From 10 am – 3 pm Nobel’s will feature and all-you-can-eat brunch buffet with bottomless Bloody Marys and mimosas for only $24.99. Upstairs, play beer pong and flip cup. Pajamas are encouraged.
Starting at 9 am, Regi’s will serve their regular brunch menu as well as $5 crushes.
Just off the Square in Canton, Saute is serving bottomless Brunch for $19.95 from 10 am until 3 pm. You can make reservations by calling Sauté at 410.327.2883 or text your name and number of people to 410.948.4930.
Serving their full brunch menu starting at 11, Papi’s is also offering all you can drink tequila sunrises, screwdrivers, bellinis, mimosas, Bloody Marys and Marias, and Dos Equis Lager and Amber for $12.
From 9:30 am until 3 pm, Cardinal Tavern will be serving their regular brunch menu.
From 11 am until 3 pm, Looney’s is featuring a Hangover Brunch with omelets, benedicts, french toast, and breakfast sandwiches as well as $4 mimosas, build your own bloodies, and Irish coffees.
