Here in New York, revelers kicking off 2012 with a raging hangover have plenty of options when it comes time to nurse that morning-after pain. So throw off those bedsheets, don your most ridiculously oversized sunglasses, pop two aspirin and call us after you've had your fill.

Have we missed your favorite recovery spot? Let us know in the comments.

Did you know that Jan. 1 is also National Bloody Mary Day? Nothing helps a hangover like a little "hair of the dog," so we fully endorse a glass or two of this curative cocktail to help celebrate both holidays.

Top honors for our favorite in the city go to Restaurant Marc Forgione, who serves his with Sriracha, house-cured shrimp, house-picked seasoned vegetables, Havarti cheese, smoked sea salt and, of course, the requisite giant olive.

We should also mention a longtime New York favorite, Prune, which offers a stunning nine variations on the classic brunch drink. Good luck getting into the tiny space for brunch though -- at this Lower East Side standby, patrons often wait hours to be seated.

Worth noting: Enid's (Williamsburg), Poco (Alphabet City)
