New Year's Day Brunches in Miami 2015

Here's the scenario. You wake up New Year's Day sometime in the late morning after a long, fun evening of champagne, fireworks, and dancing.

You pop a few Tylenol to kill the dull throbbing of your hangover, but what you really need more than painkillers are eggs... and pancakes... and a few (or three) bloody marys. You need brunch!

Luckily, a number of restaurants are primed to cater to your needs with plenty of waffles, omelets, and mimosas.
