You’ve just spent a night on the town, when the hunger cravings hit. It’s already late, so where do you go for midnight munchies? Luckily for New Yorkers, The Big Apple has an impressive selection of late night options. Recently, we consulted top New York City food bloggers in order to find the best eateries open late. Today’s post features Jean-Philippe of I Just Want to Eat, Yvo of Feisty Foodie, and Mike of NY Food Journal. From crêpes to grilled cheese sandwiches, these New York City spots are the perfect way to end a long night!

Ayza Wine and Chocolate Bar11 W 31st St

“Ayza Wine and Chocolate Bar is the perfect spot for a late night eat in New York City! The menu offers full dishes as well as small ones that are perfect for sharing. Some of them, like the angry chicken lollipop, are very comforting and ideal to accompany one of the specialty martinis made with chocolate…” –Jean-Philippe

Pommes Frites 123 2nd Ave

“Piping hot excellent frites after a night of drinking – the perfect carb to soak up all the alcohol and prevent the hangover you know is coming. The amazing array of dipping sauces that changes frequently – and they let you sample them while you wait and try to make up your mind – just adds to the experience. You’re not a real New Yorker until you’ve waited outside the tiny store in the snow or rain at 2:30 in the morning for your frites fix.” –Yvo

Little Muenster100 Stanton St.

[The grilled cheese sandwiches] are best late night and after several drinks; fortunately, Little Muenster is open late – till 1 am on Fridays and 4 am on Saturdays. It is also not a bad place to introduce kids, already accustomed to grilled cheese, to new flavors.” –Mike

Maison1700 Broadway

“Maison is a unique restaurant serving French food inspired by Bretagne, that is open 24/7. With its brasserie decor full of old French ads, it has a relaxed and casual atmosphere. Its menu features authentic French dishes such as crêpes; my favorite is the ratatouille and goat cheese one! They also serve moules frites (mussels and fries) or the traditional steak frites. This is the perfect spot for a late night eat!” –Jean-Philippe

Seoul Garden34 W 32nd St

“For a sit-down experience, soondubu (seafood stew) after a night of drinking is perfect.” –Yvo
