Chef-Approved Hangover Cures: Carbonara, Greasy Burgers, and Water, Water, Water

Giada De Laurentiis, Harold Moore, Jenn Louis, and more share their next-day strategies.

While scientists race to develop hangover-free wine and hangover-curing beer, mere mortal drinkers are left to slog through the after-effects of imbibing with nothing but time, cunning, and their preferred remedy. Eater asked chefs to reveal their go-to methods for battling the beast. "I've never really found one that works," says Vivian Howard (Chef & the Farmer; Kinston, NC), "but lots of coffee, and something like a cheeseburger, an order of fries, with pickles." Matt Jennings (Townsman; Boston, MA) boldly favors a "raw bar and Bloody Marys," noting "there's nothing like tucking into a dozen raw oysters and a couple tall spicy Bloody Marys to rejuvenate yourself."
