What night of dancing and/or barhopping until the wee hours is complete without a plate of fries or cheesy omelet just before sunrise? Here’s a sampling of some great late-night eats around Manhattan:
All-night diners are pretty common in Manhattan, but the centrally located Hollywood Diner at 574 Sixth Ave., at 16th Street (tel. 212/691-8465), is a finer place to slide into a booth and grab a sobering burger deluxe.
On the higher end, and open until 4am nightly, Blue Ribbon, 97 Sullivan St., between Prince and Spring streets (tel. 212/274-0404), is where the city’s top chefs come to unwind after they close their own kitchens. Thanks to a top-notch oyster bar and excellent comfort food, this cozy bistro is always packed, so expect a wait.
You can also check out the West Village stalwart Corner Bistro, 331 W. 4th St. (tel. 212/242-9502), home to a nearly burgers-only menu ’til 4am. In Chinatown, many restaurants are open late or all night, but don’t miss Wo Hop, open 10am to 7am, for early-morning dumplings.
In the East Village, head to 24-hour Veselka, a bustling new-style diner offering eastern European comfort food at good prices, or Katz’s Delicatessen for first-class Jewish deli eats available Friday and Saturday until 3am (11pm on weeknights).
The Theater District feast offers first-class pastrami and cheesecake until 4am at Carnegie Deli, and until 2am at the Stage Deli.
