Haven Rooftop atop The Sanctuary Hotel (132 W. 47th Street) will host a trio of Hangover Brunches to kick off 2021. Indulge in brunch on Friday, January 1st from 12pm-3pm (or over the weekend from 11am-3pm) with reservations strongly encouraged. Indulge in omelettes, avocado toast, huevos rancheros, blueberry French toast, brunch pizza with a sunnyside up egg on top or a crab benedict to start your year right.  And rest assured this plan will work rain or shine since Haven Rooftop is heated and covered to protect from the elements.

Loulou (176 8th Ave) in the heart of Chelsea will offer a New Year’s Eve tasting menu and brunch on New Year's Day from 11am to 5pm in addition to dinner service.  With a heat lamp above each of Loulou's 70 tables, you’ll be protected no matter what Mother Nature has in store.  You can go for a decadent Croissant French Toast or Gruyère Omelette or start the year on the healthy side with a Mandarin Parfait or Healthy Grain Bowl.  That can be complemented with a pitcher of mimosa or a healthy smoothie like their Green Giant or Beets varieties.
