If our earlier Fat City list of New Year's Day dining options didn't catch your fancy, here are several more ideas:

The manager at the Village Inn Family Restaurant in Mission (5800 Broadmoor, 913-236-7088) says a slice of this restaurant's French silk pie is a great hangover cure, preferably after a big hearty breakfast with eggs, toast, bacon, fried potatoes and lots of strong coffee. The Village Inn is open on New Year's Day from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

The tasteful, intimate Chaz on the Plaza in the Raphael Hotel (325 Ward Parkway, 816-756-3800) is almost booked up for Sunday-morning breakfast — it will be serving from the breakfast menu from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. But chef Charles d"Ablaing still suggests calling to see if a table is available because he's making his own hangover-cure breakfast on New Year's Day: "It's my version of the classic Truck Stop," he says.

Chubby's on Broadway (3756 Broadway, 816-931-2482) will be open New Year's Day if your tastes run to lusciously greasy breakfasts and big juicy burgers. For a more elegant breakfast burger, Celina Tio's Julian (6227 Brookside Plaza, 816-214-8454) will be serving its off-the-menu brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., including the brunch burger: a grilled English muffin topped with a juicy burger, bacon, a fried egg and supple hollandaise sauce.

Maybe a few hefty plates from an Indian buffet is the right way to usher in the year 2012. Swagat (7407 N.W. 87th Street, 816-746-9400) will offer a New Year's Day lunch buffet from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and serve from the dinner menu from 5 to 9:30 p.m. Westport's popular Korma Sutra (4113 Pennsylvania, 816-931-7775) will offer a lunch buffet from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and dinner service from 5 to 9 p.m. Ruchi in Overland Park (11168 Antioch, 913-661-9088) will offer a lunch buffet on New Year's Day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and dinner service from 5 to 10 p.m.

Kansas City's oldest barbecue joint, Rosedale Barbecue (600 Southwest Boulevard, Kansas City, Kansas, 913-262-0343) will be serving its signature smoked slabs, brisket, chicken, sausage and all the good side dishes on New Year's Day from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Another longtime favorite, Hayward's Pit Barbecue (11051 Antioch, 913-451-8080, Overland Park) will be serving 'cue from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The cult classic Don Chilito's in Mission (7017 Johnson Drive, 913-432-4615) will be serving its distinctive Tex-Mex creations from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

All the casino buffets will be up and running, but be warned: If your hangover headache is even slightly sensitive to the sound of ringing and buzzing slot machines, you might think of a more quiet, relaxing venue like J. Alexander's (11471 Metcalf, 913-469-1995), which will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Go ahead and start the new year with a big slab of chocolate cake dripping with fudge sauce. You're worth it.
