Eating black eyed peas on New Year’s Day is all about luck and prosperity, and even if it’s just a superstition dating back a few hundred years, it can’t hurt right? Steelhead is honoring the occasion with Carlton Farms All Natural Pork Chop with Black Eyed Peas and Smothered Collard Greens.

2. Local 360

Chicken and waffles, pork belly, and steak and eggs are just some of the many alcohol-soaking dishes on the menu, and whether or not you slept local on NYE, at least you can eat that way… Oh, and there’s something called a mimosa flight? We’re in.

3. Oddfellows Cafe

Who cares if it’s a Wednesday? Oddfellows doesn’t, so they’re serving their weekend brunch menu to help you fix your life. Baked eggs and ham? Brioche french toast? Just get there and they’ll fix you.

4. Hattie's Hat Restaurant

5231 Ballard Ave. NW
Seattle, WA 98107

New years are all about rebirth, right? Let the sick sense of irony wash over you as you eat the Chicken Fried Chicken and Eggs, a classic Hattie’s dish that’s as disturbing as it is delicious. Who cares if some randos say chickens are somehow bad luck for the new year, because it’s so good, you’ll feel like you can make your own luck.

5. Linda's Tavern

Bacon, you guys. That’s all we can think about sometimes when we think about making our lives better. Linda’s will have that, and a bunch more food stuffs, for their special brunch on New Year’s Day. Cowboy tacos? Bloody Mary? Done.

6. Lost Lake Cafe & Lounge

Copy Link
1505 10th Ave
Seattle, WA 98122
(206) 323-5678
Visit Website
Your body can only hold so much liquor, which is why bars close between 2 and 6 am. But LL lets you hang tough all night long, so even if you can’t possibly drink more, you can always grab a soda and some poutine at this 24 hour, always open, Cap Hill spot.

7. ART Restaurant & Lounge

99 Union St
Seattle, WA 98101
(206) 749-7000

Feeling fancy? Put on your favorite morning-after frock (oh, you’re already wearing it? Super) and head to the Four Seasons for a special benedict brunch. With a buffet ($28) or an a la carte menu ($14) Buffet, you can tackle fancy breakfast with gusto. Options include smoked salmon bennies, short rib with red wine redux, fried chicken and waffles, southern style biscuits and gravy, and more. Because this year, you’ll be classy.

8. Ballard Smoke Shop

Copy Link
5439 Ballard Ave NW
Seattle, WA 98107
(206) 784-6611
Visit Website
Check out the 5th Annual Polar Bear Plunge at Golden Gardens — as an observer or brave participant — and then warm up with some greasy diner digs at the Smoke Shop. Heck, you might even find that phone number on the ground you dropped while celebrating last night…

9. Harbor City Restaurant

Copy Link
707 S King St
Seattle, WA 98104
(206) 621-2228
The ultimate cure for a hangover? Dim sum, and the offerings at Harbor City are among the best in town. With plenty of salty, sweet, meaty, bite-sized delights, even the more indecisive among us can find satisfaction. Shu mai? Sure thing.

10. Din Tai Fung - University Village

Copy Link
2621 Northeast 46th Street
Seattle, WA 98105
(206) 525-0958
Visit Website
Not going out tonight and therefore able to stand in line in the morning without inflicting pain on others? Perfect, because you’re likely going to need the patience of a saint if you want to get into DTF’s new U. Village location, or the Bellevue spot. But like a beautiful rainbow, you’ll be handsomely rewarded by a pot of gold… or soup dumplings.

11. Smarty Pants

6017 Airport Way S
Seattle, WA 98108
(206) 762-4777

They’re closing up shop early on NYE at this Georgetown bar, so your servers might be a little more empathetic if you’re feeling less than celebratory on January 1. Opening for brunch at 9 am, you can get smart with some Huevos Panteros, or any of the other dozen options — like breakfast burritos — they’re flipping at you.

12. Easy Street Records & Cafe

Copy Link
4559 California Ave SW, #200
Seattle, WA 98116
(206) 938-3279
Visit Website
Opening an hour later than normal, at 8 AM, to give you all the grub and records you’ll need to start your year right is this West Seattle wonder. Music-inspired brekkie burritos, scrambles, frittatas, and the like make you feel full and cool.

13. Marination Ma Kai

1660 Harbor Ave SW
Seattle, WA 98127
(206) 328-8226

Spam is the new pork belly, which isn’t true, but who cares. The spam musubi at the West Seattle Marination spot and Loco Moco will totally make you feel less annoyed that your annoying couple friends are in Hawaii right now and you’re not. Open 9 am to 2 pm for breakfast, lunch, and all that jazz.

14. Hudson

Just go eat the chicken fried steak and get a side of grits and call us after your four hour nap. You’ll be fine.
