After a night of fancy dining, sipping champagne, and ringing in a brand new year into the wee hours, brunch may be necessary the next day. While many restaurants are closed on New Year’s Day, a few establishments open and are serving carb-heavy menus of burgers, platters of fried chicken, stacks of pancakes, and biscuit sandwiches chased with bloody marys to help soak up the overindulgences of the previous night. While brunch is the preferred meal at Atlanta restaurants on New Year’s Day, some restaurants also open on the holiday offering the regular menu for lunch and dinner. It’s best to call and confirm a restaurant is open before heading out on New Year’s Day, and to inquire about the menu.
