New Year's Day 2016 Brunches in Miami

Another New Year's Eve is over, and all you have to show for it is a dull, throbbing pain in your skull and a wallet devoid of cash. Sure, the night, fueled by champagne and dancing, was great, but what you really need right now is a gallon of coffee and some Advil. And brunch. 

Brunch is the cure-all for everything that ails you. Eggs, pancakes, and bloody marys with friends ring in the new year and soothe the soul — and churning stomach. 

Luckily, Miami's best chefs have forgone the New Year's partying to cater to your waffle-and-Benedict needs.
