Stu (ED HELMS) wakes up with a hangover and finds a chicken in his hotel room in Warner Bros. Pictures' and Legendary Pictures' comedy  by Steven Doyle

Brunch is that soothing fixer of all ill deeds and nothing needs more repair than New Years Day after a righteous night of revelry. We prepared a short list of some of the better brunches you will find throughout the Dallas area, and wish you a fantastic 2017. We actually have one option good enough for Ron Swanson.

Toulouse Cafe and Bar will be offering their signature brunch on New Years Day, including a classic Benedict, Eggs Florentine, a build your own omelet and Belgian Waffles. Some hair of the dog may be in order, and Toulouse makes a fine Bloody Mary along with a strong pot of coffee. Opens at 10am.


Oddfellows  opens at 7am and will be dishing out those lovely duck chilaquiles, banana cream pie French toast and a delicious short rib hash to name a few menu items. Oddfellows has a yummy bellini and Bloody Mary’s by the carafe.


Breadwinners consistently has one of the best brunches in the city offering  superior chicken and waffles,  biscuits and gravy and a croque madame to name a few select items from the brunch menu. The brunch punch should not be missed, as the many coffee drinks. Opens at 7am for your hangover needs.


Smoke has two locations for your brain repair, one in Plano and the other original location in West Dallas near Oak Cliff. Check out a past write up for more info, and they open at 7am.


Max’s Wine Dive will be open at both their Dallas and Fort Worth locations to service your need for chicken and waffles,  red velvet pancakes, and something they call the hangover cure which includes most everything they have in the kitchen. Opens at 10.

Del Frisco Grille has several locations, including one on McKinney Avenue that will be open for brunch. Sooth yourself over red velvet waffles, crab cake Benedicts, chicken fried steak and eggs and more.


Henry’s Majestic opens their doors at 10am to serve their glorious chicken and waffles, delicious biscuits and gravy, charred tomato chilaquiles, a really great pho and much more. Of course all your regular brunchy items and a build-your-own-bloody-Mary bar.


AllGood Cafe has the best chicken fried steak in Dallas. I say this constantly. Find our for yourself for their New Years Eve breakfast which begins an hour later than normal,  9am. You will want eggs and hashbrowns with that steak. If you desire, order all of the bacon and eggs they have. Please, someone do this just once.


Public School 214 opens their brunch doors on New Year’s Day at 10am which suits us just fine since we will probably be snoozing until 11. Think fried Jidori chicken and waffles, eggs Benedict pizza, a smothered breakfast burrito and more. All unique and with a full bar at that.

Care for a few cool bonus spots?


Ida Claire will also be serving up brunch on New Years Day, and has an amazing full bar for all of your crazy New Years Day needs. Think biscuits so many ways, and orange scented pancakes!


Whiskey Cake will also join in on the New Years Day fun and recovery effort. Check out the Hangover burger or the Pork, Eggs and Grits along with all the usual suspects done with a twist. Did we mention full bar?
