Late night fun place for eats in Carnegie Hall/mid town area suggestion?

Hello! I will be visiting NYC from Boston with a group of friends and we are looking for a fun place that is not necessarily "hip" or "trendy" but offers good food, lots of desserts and is open late on a Monday night. We have all been to NYC a few times and find the challenge with finding a place open late enough on a Monday night. Last year we tried to hit the Cafeteria (more because it sounded like a fun place to go) and believe it or not we hit it on a night where they closed early for inventory or something like that. (Can you imagine?) We don't have to have a location in midtown but we're staying near Carnegie Hall so it's preferred. Many thanks for your suggestions in advance!

  1. You didn't mention how late, but the Redeye Grill is open until 11pm on Mondays. Great seafood and across from Carnegie Hall.

      We are ideally looking for something that is open until at least midnight or 1am. I've been to RedEye Grill and it's great.

    2. OK, the only place I know open past 11pm is Serafina Broadway in the Dream Hotel. I think it's open until 12am. Fun place! Food is good.

      1. Tintol, on 46th St., b/t 6th & 7th Avs., serves Portuguese tapas. I haven't been, so I can't tell you how good the food is or what the vibe is like though sharing tapas is always fun. They are open every day until midnight.

          Tintol is a good suggestion. Not the best tapas place in New York City, but definitely very good, especially considering the dearth of tapas/Portugese places in the area. I'm surprised that the restaurant is not more busy. Every time I've eaten there, it's been very empty. Perhaps it's timing as I've eaten there past 8:00P. The patrons may be the theater crowd.

        2. The Carnegie Deli is open until 4:00 AM and will certainly have enough energy for you (or anybody). If it's crowded, ask for the back room, which is less frenetic and where you can sit longer.

          1. I don't know if it completely meets your requirements (particularly in the dessert deparment), but the Burger Joint at Le Parker Meridien Hotel on W57th Street is the place we go when in that area. Great chow-cred with many a burger hound.

              Thank you! These are all great choices! We have all eaten at Carnegie Deli many a time and always loved the NYC vibe in there. I'll report back when we go and let you know where we went. Thanks to all!

                  burger joint closes by 11pm on mondays, if not earlier. i was gonna recommend this place as well until i read your post and saw 12am. angelo's pizza (sells pizza by pie only) is another place nearby but they close at 11pm. try
