For the one hangover of the year so epic it requires spending the entire day in pajamas, go eat free doughnuts on the one day of the year Angel Food Bakery makes them. PJs are requires for complementary sweets. (773-728-1512).
Keep it Classy
Put some clothes on, maybe take a shower or at least shake off the glitter – and then return to the classy side of life at Bistronomic. Their New Year’s Day brunch special includes an entrée and mimosas for $20.13. (312-944-8400).
Start the New Year with a meal from one of the best restaurants of the old year. Trenchermen will serve popcorn grits, sauerkraut bagel with smoked salmon, kimchee mortadella bao as well as New Year’s Day specials. (773-661-1540).
Because we might require some incentive to get out of bed on January 1st, Slurping Turtle is hosting a pajama party and everyone dressed in PJs walks away with free cinnamon brioche donut holes and a gift certificate good for at 50 percent of the total bill for the next visit. (312-464-0466).
The cure-all: Meat, eggs and bread. Vincent translates this to a pork belly sandwich with tomato bacon jam, manchego cheese, red onion, spicy aioli and fried eggs. Wash it down with a “Pink Elephant,” sparkling moscato and fresh squeezed grapefruit juice. (773-334-7168).
For a Big Gulp sized bloody Mary, the only place to go is Dragon Ranch. Sixty-four ounce ones will be on special for $28, also known as “Hair of the Dragon.” It’s topped with beef jerky, a fried pickle and a spare rib, but we recommend an additional entre to soak up the booze. (312-955-1900).
