I was going to do a big roundup of places to brunch on New Year’s Day, but I ended up with a few too many things on my plate the last couple of weeks. From the bit of checking around that I did do, it seems like a good bit of places are open, but call ahead to be sure.
After a few calls of inquiry (yes, one of which was from me), The Argonaut ditched their 1 pm opening and limited menu plan and will now open at 11 am for brunch…with their bloody mary bar and bottomless mimosas! Belga Cafe never passes up a holiday as a chance to serve brunch, Founding Farmers tweeted that they will start serving brunch at 10 am, and Kramer Books’ Afterwords Cafe tweeted that they’ll open at 9 am for brunch. Yes, I said “tweeted.” So aside from checking Open Table or calling ahead, try my DC Restaurant List on Twitter. You’ll be amazed at how many area restaurants are on there and how quickly you can find a great place to try by seeing the latest updates on the list. And if you notice that I’m missing any good restaurants, please let me know!
Have a great NYE – be safe out there and go easy on the alcohol so you can kick off the start of 2010 properly with a delicious brunch with friends. If you did happen to over-indulge when toasting the end of 2009, refer back to my lists top hangover cures here and here. And don’t forget the bacon! It’s now scientifically proven to cure hangovers!
