Too much bubbly can make for a rough January 1, and since sicky and prone is no way to commence a new year, Nosh Pit is here to suggest the ultimate hangover shaker: a belly coating breakfast.
We called a slew of breakfast hangouts—most of them greasy spoons—to find out which ones are open New Year’s Day, and at what times. Also find below recommendations for what to order; employees chimed in with what they think is their best hangover helper.
