Cheers to the best Fort Worth restaurants for brunch on New Year's Day 2024
New Year’s Day falls on a Monday this year, and some restaurants are opening up for brunch service to bring in 2024. It’s also National Bloody Mary Day, the perfect excuse to kick off the year with a cocktail – or cure a hangover from the night before. Here are some of Fort Worth’s best spots for New Year’s Day brunch. (Note: This list will grow as more are announced.) Still need New Year's Eve dining plans? That list is here.
