late night dining/drinks

Energetic couple in our 40's looking to dine after the theater. We were thinking if Buddakan on a Friday night at 11pm was still going strong.Also need some suggestions to have drinks after dinner on other nights without having to face the "velvet rope" that are fun

        Blue Ribbon is famous for its late night dining

        I have had reservations at Buddakan at 11:30 before. It definitely goes strong until 1 or so for dinner. The Times (I think) had an article a few months ago about late night dining. Covered all the standards plus a few I hadn't heard of.
        For nice drinks you might like Little Branch in the W Village. Crowded on Fri and Sat, but fun on other nights.

          Momosuku Ssam Bar changed their hours to close at midnight for a while, but they're back to 2am nowadays.

          Need another late night restaurant for after the theater. We have been to Buddakan, Stanton Social and Balthazar. All of them were lot's of fun. What about; Nobu 57, Megu, Allen&Delancey, Cafe Soicialista or any other suggestions? Any location or price.

            I would also suggest checking out Little Branch on Seventh Ave. Great drinks in a very unique atmosphere. Well worth the trip.

              No food, though, as far as I know.

              Fatty Crab on 643 Hudson Street is a good option. They stay open until 2 a.m. on weekends and the food is great.

              What part of town is your theatre in?
