24-Hour/Late Night Chow in the City

For such a big college town, I feel like Boston is lacking in late-night good chow spots; or maybe I'm just missing out. Other night owl chowhounds, what are your favorites?

  1. I end up going out late for dinner, but probably not as late as you would like. I've been at the Union Bar & Grille when they were closing and the staff there heads to the Gaslight on Harrison Ave for a late dinner. I also like the Franklin Cafe on Shawmut which keeps it's kitchen open very late. KIngston Station advertises a late menu, but I've never tried it. There are several places in Chinatown that keep late hours.

    1. I had started a thread about this a while back you can search. Pretty grim situation.

      1. There used to be a few very late-night places, but I believe that today just a few places in Chinatown are your best bet.

        1. A short piece on a year ago mentioned that Miel at the Intercontinental is open 24 hours. And their website confirms it:

          Hours of Service
          * Breakfast: 5:00am – 11:00am
          * All day dining: 11:30am – 02:00am
          * Sunday day Brunch: 12:00 – 03:00 pm
          * Late dining: Midnight – 5:00am

            Sometimes Apollo Grill/Sushi is kinda good, for some homestyle Kalbi and Bulgogi, especially when you find your way to Chinatown after a night of heavy EtOH. :)

          2. There's no great 24 hour eateries, and there's no 24 hour gyms to work off the glutony.
