Whether your New Year's Eve involves hopping from rager to rager or a simple night on your couch watching the ball drop, you’re likely going to need some recovery time the next morning. Luckily, restaurants all over San Antonio are stepping in to help clear the post-party fog. Here are six of our favorite brunches guaranteed to start your year off right.
In addition to offering its regular brunch menu, Boiler House is offering a special New Year's Day menu that includes green chile pulled pork, poached eggs and popcorn grits, BLT mac and egg, a barbacoa sando, and hangover hash.
A walk around the Pearl Brewery sounds ideal on the first day of 2018, particularly if it includes brunch at Cured. This industrial chic gastropub will kick off the year in style with menu items that include smoked meats, po’boys, salads, burgers, and more.
Magnolia Pancake Haus
If pancakes and waffles are your go-to hangover cure, you're in luck — both the Medical Center and Embassy Oaks locations of Magnolia Pancake Haus will be open on New Year's Day. In addition to a full menu, Magnolia offers a variety of egg dishes, French toast, and breakfast meats. But don't be surprised if there's wait — Magnolia does not accept reservations.
Max’s Wine Dive
Head over to Quarry Village for festive offerings including king cake French toast, Southern fried chicken, a honey-butter Benedict, and more tasty items. Make your reservation ahead of time if you don't want to wait around with a hangry crowd.
The beloved San Antonio restaurant that never sleeps (literally, it's open daily with no exceptions) is perfect for a fun New Year's Day bite. Late risers can relax knowing breakfast is served all day. Enjoy favorites like machado, chilaquiles famosos, and huevos a la Mexicana. And don't forget to leave without trying Mi Tierra's famous hot chocolate.
Two Bros. BBQ
If you are native Texan, you already know about the curative powers of smoked meats. If you are new to the state, it’s not too late to get with the program. We suggest you begin with a pair of dishes from chef Jason Dady’s smokehouse: pork spare ribs and the famous Cheesy Chop — a stomach coating mix of mac and cheese with saucy brisket.
