A quintessential nyc diner- open late

Hi- I'm coming in late to NYC (10 p.m.) after a food deprived flight. Want a fun and good place to take two 18 y/o girls, who have never been to and can't wait to see NYC! Any recommendations?

  1. I would go to Morimoto. I think i would have loved that place at 18yo.

    1. Where will you be staying? That may be of some help in recommending a place.

        We'll be staying in the financial district, Williams and Pine. What about walking up to Katz's?

            Thanks you guys. I checked out their web site, and it looks like fun and good food. Not too far from where we're staying, also!

              if you want a modernized classic old american diner instead i'd add that EMPIRE DINER in chelsea is open all nite. if you meant diner specifically and not 'dinner' that is?

                Another vote for Florent. The kids will like the vibe and the food is pretty good.

            2. Are you looking for a D-I-N-E-R ?

                I was originally thinking about a diner, like the Empire Diner (forgot the name), but some of these other places yoiiou've mentioned sound maybe better. Thanks!
