New York is a 24-hour city, and as such it requires 24-hour eating options. When you stumble out of your favorite bar at 4am, don’t give into the temptation to settle for mediocre bodega snacks; there are top-notch restaurants that stay open all night long to satisfy your fourth-meal needs.
To help you win at any hour, we bring you our go-to late-night dining options across the city, from a Cuban diner where you can order chicharrón-topped mac and cheese at 2am, to a Southern biscuit emporium turning out anytime egg-and-cheddar sandwiches laced with Benton’s bacon. No matter what your inebriated self is craving post-party, we’ve got you covered.
