Places for dinner after 11pm?

rdc Dec 15, 2006 05:26 PM

Aside from 24-hour diners and such, what sort of sit-down places are open for dinner in the HK area around 11pm on a Saturday?

    Marseille, the French/Mediterranean brasserie, on the corner of 9th Av. & 44th St., serves until midnight Tues.-Sat.


    Hell's Kitchen, the Mexican restaurant, on 9th, b/t 46th & 47th St., serve until midnight Wed.-Sat.


    Le Madeleine (French), Rene Pujol (French), and Roberto Passon (Italian) serve until 11:30 p.m. on Sat.


    Menupages.com is an excellent resource for checking restaurant hours, though it's always wise to call the restaurant directly to be absolutely certain.

        But neither is in Hell's Kitchen, which is the area the o.p. is interested in.

            Yes, and Pigalle is open 24/7. However, I think the food's superior at Marseille, which is one of its sister restaurants.

          this is a darn good question!!
          french roast - w80s and broadway, open 24 hours. i believe there is still a location in the village/chelsea area. check it out on menupages.com.

          HK is the most convenient but we're definitely not opposed to taking a cab somewhere if need be. Marseille looks really good for the area and as a bonus has some explicitly gluten-free items (I'm allergic to gluten myself though my g/f is not). Hell's Kitchen also looks like it might be worth investigating. For now if I were to say out-of-area, Florent seems like the place to go.

          Thanks for all the replies so far! I now have a litany of late-night places to check out.

              Pastis is open late also. 2AM, I think?

                We wound up hitting Florent, which was very good. It seems like most of the late night spots tend to be French bistros. Will be checking out the other places recommended here in the future for sure.

                  Glad you enjoyed Florent!

                  Another spot I like to go late night is L'Express on Park Ave South. If you are in the area I would try this place as well.

                    Just thought of another great spot in the Theater District that stays open late: West Bank Cafe until 1 a.m. The New American cuisine there is excellent.

                      The menu here looks great. I'll definitely keep this place in mind.

                      Also Seppi's in the Parker Meridien (W. 56th bet. 6-Bway), French-ish, is open until 2 a.m.

                        Love West Bank Cafe...it's been there forever, my friend from high school lived in the building it's in back then, we went to brunch there a lot!
