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