As you’re gearing up for a fun, exciting, and eventful New Year’s Eve here in Dallas, don’t forget to make plans for the morning after! There’s nothing quite like a mid-morning or early afternoon brunch, and if you’re looking for some of the best spots in town to kick off the new year with a nice hearty meal, here’s our list of the top 5 places for a New Year’s Day brunch in Dallas:
AF+B | 2869 Crockett Street (Ft. Worth) | View Website
Although not technically in Dallas, AF+B is one of THE best places to grab brunch anywhere in DFW, so we couldn't leave it off our list. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., American Food and Beverage's New Year's Day Brunch has everything you could ever want in a mid-morning meal, including french toast with seasonal fruit, biscuits and gravy, hazelnuts and crème fraiche, or a good ole' fashioned American Breakfast that inlcudes scambeled eggs, house made bacon, and more!
Boxwood Tap + Grill | 2901 Thomas Avenue | View Website
What better way to welcome in 2015 than with all kinds of drink specials and some special New Year’s Day brunch items like Black Eyed Peas and Collard Greens and Ham? College football will also be on all day, and the regular Happy Hour also begins at 4 p.m. in case you can’t make the 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. brunch service!
The Gin Mill | 1921 Henderson Avenue | View Website
Serving up everything from Eggs Norwegian style to potato pancakes and crepes, there’s no better place in town for a solid brunch than The Gin Mill. Mimosas will also be on special as well, so if you don't yet have any New Year’s Day brunch plans, The Gin Mill should always be worth considering.
Meddlesome Moth | 1621 Oak Lawn Avenue | View Website
While most local joints won’t open for brunch until 10 a.m. or 11, Meddlesome Moth’s special New Year’s Day brunch starts at 9 a.m., making it the perfect stop for all you early birds. And if you've never been to Meddlesome Moth for brunch before, the French Toast Sandwich is pretty awesome.
SER | 2201 Stemmons Freeway | View Website
If you're looking to get an early start on your New Year's Day brunch, you can't get much earlier than 1 a.m. This year, SER will be offering a special four course breakfast right at 1 a.m. that will include Belgian Waffles, Japanese omlets, house made tots, and a whole lot more. I guess if you have other plans for New Year's Day, why not just get brunch in right after midnight, right?
