Not many reasons other than this place to go into times square. By midnight most of the tourists are gone and Hagi is crawling with industry professionals and foodies alike. I would strongly suggest the pork belly skewers as well as fried chicken gizzards! Many different sakis to choose from as well as wine and Japanese beers. Great place for late night night snacking!

Omusaba is hands down my favorite item. It's a huge omelette filled with noodles and pork. Do that with an overflowing sake box shot and you are in great shape. Anything there that is tempura-fried is outstanding!

If you want to have a decent bottle of wine and real food (i.e. not something out of a bar kitchen) after midnight, this is by far one of your best downtown options. Many of the other parts of the Blue Ribbon empire are open very late, but this one has a special spot in the hearts of service industry professionals. You can start with a great selection of raw bar and a bottle of grower champagne, followed by an appetizer of bone marrow. Finish strong with their signature fried chicken and a burger with a bottle of Cru Beajolais. In the mood for something more haute? Have a surf and turf with 1er Cru Meursault. I've never been to the Brasserie before 1:00 AM, and this is probably the only place in New York to dine this way between 2:00 and 4:00 AM (when they close). Absolutely do not attempt this on a Friday or Saturday unless you're prepared for a long wait.

There are not too many place that serve good food after you get out of your shift at midnight or 1 am, but Oh! Taisho has always been my go-to spot. It's not fancy, it's not the cleanest place, but it never fails to leave a smile on my face. The whiff of charcoal grill as you walk in is very welcoming. Yakitori is the main attraction here, and I'd suggest you order a lot of it. The variety is big enough to satisfy everyone in your party. I always go for chicken gizzard and well-done chicken skin. Besides yakitori, they also serve other great dishes; Fried potatoes with Mentai sauce, which is to die for (combination of Japanese mayo and fish roe), Raw octopus marinaded in wasabi, which is a great side dish to enjoy with sake or sapporo, and Kumbocha Squash Tempura. Plus, after you're done, you can walk down the block to Bull McCabe's to drink while shooting pool or throwing darts (++)

I've been going here for years. Now that it's close to work I stop in many late nights. Saburi is an interesting mix of Japanese food with a strong Chinese accent.

The menu is long and allows plenty of space for adventure if not a little failure. Noodle soups and fried rice always hit the the spot as do most salads. It's a drinking place and the food matches. You may even see the chef sitting at the bar dipping his Doritos into a tin of fish roe!

Probably the only place in North Brooklyn you can get non-diner, non-deli food this late. Decent selection of wines as well. The only problem is the crowd in the bar can be kind of obnoxious sometimes, but the eating area in back is usually chill.

Bubby's has saved my life on more than one occasion. When I get out of work (and pastry is pretty much always the last to leave), I am starving. Working down in Tribeca, there's not too many great late-night options, and even some of the pizza places close up on the early end. What I like about Bubby's is you can get real, quality food, even though it's past midnight. And they're open 24 hours, with the exception of Tuesday nights. I miss when they used to feature the full menu all night, but you can't go wrong with a Bubby's burger and a side of mac and cheese.

It doesn't look like much from the outside but they bang out some super legit and seriously delicious tacos 24/7. I used to go there almost every night after work and fill up on carnitas (2 for $2 by the way) before crossing the road to my apartment and passing out for the night. There aren't many reasons to go up to East 116th but if you do find yourself up there with a grumbling stomach, pop your head into El Aguila for a bite to eat.

A place that seems to be full of diners all day and all night, Kunjip is my go-to late night eatery. Their extensive menu features well executed favorites like seafood pancakes and dumplings, korean bbq cooked at your table (items like brisket, short rib, pork loin or shrimp). I always gravitate towards their soup bowls- often spicy, yet amazing flavors and always a great value. Writing this now, I find myself craving the Budae Chigae, a bowl of spicy kimchee, noodles, sausage, and tofu. Try it sometime, thank me later.

They have friendly service, good cocktails, and a nice sour beer selection at Maiden Lane, but I really come here for the smoked whitefish salad. Served in a sandwich or on a platter you can't go wrong. They have an awesome tinned seafood selection, which they sometimes offer in a flight of three. They serve food until 2 am and usually have a more mellow crowd than their surrounding East Village bars. Definitely a great spot for a nice late snack.

(Disclaimer: This is a bar, not a restaurant. If you plan on soaking up alcohol with food, it's definitely possible at Daddy-O. And then you can just order more alcohol.)

I've been hanging out at Daddy-O for over a decade. The bartenders are always nice, the beers are always delicious, and the crowd is only seldomly douche-y.

BESIDES ALL THAT GREAT STUFF... These folks serve food 'til 4AM. FOUR. AM. And it's not just a crappy slice from the corner. It's a nitrate-free BLT on Sullivan Street Pullman loaf. Or a dry-aged brisket burger with house-made ketchup. Or, and this is my favorite, a pair of Zweigle's hot dogs with macaroni salad, home fries, and hot sauce. Plus they're bunless! So if you're not doing carbs, you can still pretend like you're a super fun person.

But, honestly, if you're getting after a pair of dogs or with tater tots and bread pudding at 2am, you won't remember to count calories.

I love Cuban food, well... I love all cuisines. Coppelia is open 24/7 and used to be a spot where I'd take my cooks out after a long dinner service. I have tried so many items on their menu. Everything is delicious. Its the cuban diner! There used to be a old diner right before them.

Somewhat hidden on the corner of E.13 and 1st Avenue lies the little late-night Japanese spot Ichibantei. Japanese food and reggae, who could have thought of such combination. With covers of Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Buju Banton, Shaba Ranks, Dennis Brown, Rita Marley, and many others fill up the walls while reggae cranks up in the background in the dim light, Ichibantei speaks straight to my heart. Open till 3am on weekdays and 4am on Friday & Saturday, Ichibantei is always my choice for a late night guilty pleasure. Many times after long days, their comforting chicken nanban or tuna steak are all I need. Their chicken nanban is possibly the best in town. The juicy tender chunks of chicken perfectly combine with the tartar sauce. I still can't explain how the lovely couple owner of this spot and their simple yet amazing food can make me feel so much like home, so much at ease. NYC is the kingdom of good food with many good restaurants but Ichibantei is for sure my top favorite.

Gyro King is a little family run place in Kensington, BK by the Church Ave F&G train stop. They make the falafel in house and have a great lamb gyro as well. Just make sure to get them with everything on it including white and hot sauce, you'll thank me. They also have baklava for dessert. Typically you'll find cabbies hanging out with an Uber office in the back. It's open 24 hours so you can stop by and then catch a ride at any time.
