Late Night Eats in Park Slope

I've been very frustrated looking for a late night eatery in the Slope. Anyone have any suggestions for late night weekday eating? I checked out Long Tan on 5th which was still serving dinner and drinks at 11pm on a wednesday night...
Any ideas? Fave hangouts? Thanks!

  1. Great question. Taco Neuvos is open late and I occasionally stop by for a late-night drunken snack, but I'm interested in what other options exist out there. I've had food after minight at Blue Ribbon, too, but that's not something I can splurge on too often.

      A tough one, right? Even the 24 hr diner are pretty awful. Purity, Grecian Corner. Yuck. HELP US!

    2. Forget it. This neighborhood is PICKY about hours, including being open for lunch, open between lunch and dinner, and keeping the kitchen open past 11. Daisy's diner is on 9th and 5th. At least they stay open all night. Also on 5th...each and every fried chicken dump, Joe's of the Village pizza, and Lenny's. Even our local Chinese take-out places close before midnight.

      If Cafe Steinhof served food until 2, we'd be in a lot better shape.

      1. Blue Ribbon is open late every night, and they are religious about it: even if you come in at 2 am and there's no one else there, they will still feed you. I know it's not particularly cheap, but the drinks are good and you can always just get a bowl of soup.

        1. I know these are not Park Slope, but I work in Red Hook and live in Ditmas Park, and often come home from work between 11 PM and 2 AM and need a little something. Of course, I'm driving, so I have a bit of range. Nothing I know of in Park Slope is worth it at these hours. I think Smith St Gravy seems to have some potential, but it hasn't come close to living up to it in several attempts. My late night stops are Karam in Bay Ridge, Sahara on Coney, Madina on Coney, and Ital Shak on Nostrand. I would love it if there were a latenight place on 4th or 5th Ave. There's a kind of Roti Shop place that opened on 4th and Bergen that is open late. I had a patty there. It was gross.

          I haven't tried Sunset Park late.

            There are some pretty good Chinese places open late in Sunset Park, some as late as 3am.

          2. 7th Avenue Donuts on the corner of 9th Street and 7th Avenue. They make no pretenses of who they are and they have wonderful donuts and coffee. Their grilled cheese sandwiches and eggs (which they serve all day) aon't so bad either. I don't know if they still do this, but every other day they used to make Virginia ham on the bone. I thought they had it close to down pat. Just enough sweet glaze on the fat/skin and a nice brine in the meat.

              Second the motion on 7th Avenue Donuts - IIRC, homemade soup and a grape jelly doughnut - that's a meal! They've even had herbal tea on occasion.

                Which corner is it on? I've never noticed this place and I walk by there just about every day.

                  It's not on the corner. It's a couple of storefronts in, maybe next to Brooklyn Industries, near the northwest corner. It's not great, but it definitely takes top honors among the sea of mediocre diners in Park Slope. The doughnuts are pretty good. Stay away from the sickly sweet milkshakes.
