New Year's Day 2013: A Miami Brunch Guide
Yardbird's glorious Bloody Mary
Dave B. via foursquare
January 1st: the only day of the year when the government sanctions our hangovers with paid time off. After overindulging in bottles of cheap champagne and a river of Red Bull vodkas, there's nothing better than an oversized midday meal to soothe your aching head and rumbling tummy.
And if your cranky, sunglassed dining companion starts ruining your morning by bitching about her ill-fated weight loss resolution - you have our permission to plug her pie hole with a scrumptious muffin.
Happy New Year.

The Ritz's chic bistro is there to sooth your post-party woes with a Recovery Brunch. Sip Bloody Marys and stuff yourself silly with breakfast favorites while sitting indoors or out. For $49, you can get your fill from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Roll outta bed (or straight in from the celebration) and take your pick of lobster bisque, Norwegian Benedict, salmon carpaccio, Parisian omelets or other European-inspired surprises.
