BORDER GRILL After watching the famous New Year‘s Eve ball drop and toasting to 2017, Border Grill is kicking off the new year with a Hangover Border Brunch. The city’s beloved Border Brunch gets even better on Jan. 1st from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., featuring a bloody maria bar, bottomless mimosas and unlimited small plate favorites like the Yucatan Pork Benedict, Steak and Egg Rancheros, Churro Tots and many more options to cure any hangover cravings you might conjur on the first day of 2017.
E.P. & L.P. This trendy West Hollywood hangout will air The Rose Parade and the Rose Bowl game at its rooftop bar, while the kitchen will serve the “Ultimate Hangover Chicken Sandwich,” among other items. Get your hair of the dog fix with bottomless mimosas and bottomless Bloody Marys.
THE QUEEN MARY The Queen Mary Sunday Champagne Brunch is a must given that you can travel around the world (cuisine-wise) without even leaving the dock. Delight in traditional western breakfast fare like made-to-order omelets, pancakes, eggs benedict and homemade hash or experience a southwestern sensation with Albondigas soup and carne asada tacos. Spice it up with the Asian-inspired Hot n’ Sour soup or Asian style ribs. Cleanse your palate at our refreshing salad station featuring a chef crafted cobb salad, imported tuna nicoise and a variety of domestic and imported cheeses. The highlight is our signature carving station, which offers perfectly prepared prime rib with au jus and leg of lamb with mint jus. Add in the elegant location—the ship’s Grand Salon— and that it features live entertainment, the Sunday Champagne Brunch has the air of a royal soiree and is anything but typical. Free-flowing champagne just sweetens the experience.
