There are very few instances when it is acceptable to wear pajamas in public. Fortunately, New Year’s Day is one of them, as a number of restaurants in the city and the suburbs offer pajama brunches for the whole family to enjoy. So roll out of bed (literally), grab some hair of the dog and eat until your heart’s content (thanks to the elastic waistbands). Please note, for all brunches, reservations are strongly encouraged.

Café Ba-Ba-Reeba

When: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Where: 2024 N. Halsted St., Chicago

Featuring one of the best Build-Your-Own Bloody Mary bars in the city, complete with olives, pickles, shrimp and various hot sauces, guests can pair drinks with savory brunch tapas. A huge bonus, come in your pajamas and you’ll receive a gift card equal to the price of your meal to use on a future visit.

Mon Ami Gabi

When: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Where: 260 Oakbrook Center, Oak Brook

Start the year off with a delicious French brunch of savory quiches, crepes and Crème Brulee French Toast. Wash it down with a signature Gabi Bloody Mary or a French Blonde. Because Mon Ami Gabi is also part of the Lettuce Entertain You group, showing up in your jammies will get you a gift card equal to the value of your meal for your next visit.
