Seven New Year's Day Brunches in Miami: Cure Your Hangover Here
This is Miami, and if there's one thing we can guarantee, it's that 2014 will come in like a wrecking ball. (Bereft of Miley Cyrus, however, since she ditched the 305 to wag her tongue in Times Square instead.)

So when you wake up January 1 -- glitter lodged in every orifice, head pounding like EDM beats, feeling the wrath of said wrecking ball -- you'll need some nourishment. Luckily, there are plenty of delicious eats around town to get you on the road to recovery.
Tongue & Cheek
Jamie DeRosa's Washington Avenue charmer will be open for biz, plating up yummy eats for sleep-deprived SoBe residents.

Oh, and for $25 you can score bottomless sangria, bloody marys, bellinis, or mimosas. Hair of the dog, for the win. Brunch runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call 305-704-2900 for reservations.
Yardbird Southern Table & Bar
South Beach's favorite spot for Southern fare will serve a serious spread for hungry, hungover revelers.
