Shaw’s Crab House: Start the new year in style with a bevy of brunch specials at Shaw’s in River North, a revered restaurant with particular renown for its weekend brunch. Build-your-own omelets, Belgian waffles and a decadent seafood spread will all be on-hand, along with surf & turf options and a sprawling sweets table. In addition, all attendees will be given a $25 gift cart to use towards lunch in 2018. Brunch costs $59 for adults, $10 for kids 7-12 and free for children under six. 

Kizuki: Nothing soothes a Champagne hangover quite like a hearty bowl of ramen, which is what makes Wicker Park’s Kizuki such a perfect destination come New Year’s Day. The restaurant has just the hangover cure with lunch starting at 11:30 a.m.: 10 different bowls of ramen will be offered, including staples like the tonkotsu shoyu ramen with pork broth, soy sauce and black garlic oil; and the yuzu shio ramen with French sea salt, kelp and Japanese citrus. 

Frontier: Nothing satisfies a New Year’s hangover quite like a boozy brunch. Frontier understands this perfectly, and the West Town restaurant and bar is celebrating appropriately with drink specials like mimosa towers, plus comfort food options like beignets, bacon flights, Wagyu sirloin steak and eggs and chicken biscuits. Brunch will be served from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and reservations can be made by calling the restaurant.

Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba!: For the 12th time, Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba! is featuring its famed pajama brunch, encouraging patrons to attend in their comfiest attire. From 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., the Spanish classic features a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar along with a myriad of sweet and savory brunch tapas. For those who dine in pajamas, they’ll receive a gift certificate equal to the price of their meal for a future visit. 

Stella Barra Pizzeria: Here’s another pajama brunch to add to your radar. The casual, comforting affair runs from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. and includes endless warm cinnamon roll bread pudding, egg enchiladas, short rib hash and more. There’s also $5 Bloody Marys, mimosas and bellinis. Again, for those who dine in pajamas, they’ll receive a gift certificate equal to the value of their meal.
