Start the New Year with a happy, full stomach.
| Katie Cannon

Overdo the Manhattans on New Year’s Eve? Did 2016 kick you while you were down? Brunch is always a good call, but on New Year’s Day it is highly recommended since no one is really expecting you to get out of bed before 10 a.m. or look your peppiest the morning after the last day of the year. Plus, this year January 1 actually lands on Sunday, which, by law (we’re pretty sure), requires a brunch outing. Also, football, which goes down way better with a bloody or four. Let us all welcome the new, and hopefully improved, year with a bowl of warm broth or a golden fried egg on just about anything, and let us together ignore the Vikings game on the tube, shall we?


While this map touches on some favorite spots, there are many more noteworthy eateries around town where one can rest their weary heads on their hands while sipping on a bloody or latte. Share your go-to hangover friendly restaurants in the comment section.


May the new year greet our readers with tables full of delectable cuisine from near and far.

A piping hot bowl of pho on the first day of the year just about guarantees success in 2017. At least that’s what we’ll be telling ourselves as we fill our bellies with pho-made-your-way at King’s. Choose your fave protein, veggies and broth for only $15 a bowl.

2. Tori Ramen

Copy Link
161 Victoria St N
Saint Paul, MN 55104
There really isn’t a better way to sooth post-2016 blues than with kimchi ramen, and at Tori Ramen, they make a stellar version of the kicky elixir. Belly up to the counter and let the team behind St. Paul’s first dedicated ramen spot cure whatever damage was done the night before.

3. Stewart's

Copy Link
128 Cleveland Ave N
Saint Paul, MN 55104
Stewart’s is serving a fun New Year’s eve dinner, but if you missed your chance at a reservation, try the super cozy basement level eatery’s brunch instead. The humbly named AN OMELETTE IS AN OMELETTE IS AN OMELETTE is anything but a boring old omelette. The dish is ethereal yet substantial and satisfying, served with buttered toast, greens and goat cheese. Rumor has it that French fries are the best cure for hangovers, and the Korean version at Stewart’s has just the right amount of heat and oily crunchiness to cure whatever ails ya’.
