New Year's Day downtown

Does anyone have anything to add to this list?

    Keep the New Year’s party alive! Starr Restaurants are open New Year’s Day. Brunch@ Jones, lunch@ Pizzeria Stella, Dinner@ Butcher & Singer.
    Not sure if any of them work for you, but most are close to Rittenhouse! Just steer clear of McGillians Pub (or others like it) as many "parade-watchers" start their New Years days there at 8am... it can get ugly quick! :)
