Beat Those Hangover Blues With These 5 Brilliant Brunch Spots

Whether you're nursing a rough one or are smugly sober, a lovely brunch on New Year's Day is the perfect way to ring in 2012. Bottomless mimosas, spicy Bloody Marys — and even though we got your attention with the booze — delicious food are all musts for a hungover brunch with friends. We rounded up our favorite spots from across L.A. to say "Auld Lang Syne" one sip or forkful at a time.

With a menu perfected by seasonal ingredients, there isn't anything not worth ordering. But if we had to pick a favorite, the breakfast sandwich and blueberry pancakes are pretty amazing, and make this a fantastic spot for an all-American brunch with a farmers' market twist.

The Misfit
How awesome does prosciutto and poached eggs with burrata for brunch sound? Add in bottomless mimosas and a "balanced breakfast" (house-infused oatmeal bourbon sweetened with maple syrup), and you have a sophisticated "hair of the dog" breakfast that will work wonders.

If you're in a Bloody Mary mood, the homemade mix at Home is filled with horseradish spice and fresh vegetable juice. Sipping on a few of these on the outdoor patio will definitely put you in a better state, at least until your nap.
