After staying up past midnight and eating and drinking for a few hours, the best solution for the next morning is … brunch! Here are some places in Palm Beach County to start the New Year.

Head out to the western Delray Marketplace, for Apeiro Kitchen & Bar’s (14917 Lyons Road, Delray Beach, 561/501-4443) New Year’s Day brunch. Start with a Gazpacho Bloody Mary or sangria, then caramelized waffles (pictured) or steak and eggs, eggs benedict, curry chicken pita, a burrata and a lot more at this Mediterranean dish-inspired restaurant.

Recover from a big night with a French twist by heading to a New Year’s Day Brunch at Pistache (101 N. Clematis St., West Palm Beach, 561/833-5090). From 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., enjoy the a la carte brunch menu that has everything from pain au chocolat to provencale quiche, to eggs benedict, escargots, mahi mahi, filet au poivre and more. Then there are the cocktail specials; with a carafe of the St. Germain Cocktail for $30. Oh la la!
