Looking for a place late night in Miami on Halloween - only one night in town.
Hello, my girlfriend and I are taking a surprise trip down to the Caribbean, and staying one night in Miami along the way - it happens to be on Halloween, this Saturday night. Our flight doesn't even get in until about 11:00 pm, so we're looking for a good place to eat that will be open past midnight. I understand that such places exist, but can we find something on short notice?
We would love, LOVE to have good Cuban food - we love to try all sorts of cuisines, and we just haven't had the opportunity to do so as of yet. Does such a late-night, Halloween place exist?
If not, we will be back for one more night on our way "out" of the area, so we'll have to make plans to find a great Cuban place ahead of time on that day. I assume that this board is full of such recommendations, and at least one "can't miss while in Miami" post?
Unless it's changed back in the past month, Au Pied de Cochon is no longer open 24 hours, though I believe it's open till 2am weekends ->
I've not been but there is a Nicaraguan place called Yambo off 17th Ave. Dodgy neighborhood, sort of take-out stand / picnic table setup, open all night.
Red Light keeps late night hours and gets into the Halloween spirit (they had a little "haunted house" downstairs that the chef's daughters made last year). Food is good, but service will likely suffer on a party night like Halloween. You can read more on Red Light here ->
Here's a thread on "top late dining," sort of old but most suggestions are still good (though some have closed) ->
I would also suggest Hiro's Yakko-San, although it might be a bit more than 15 minutes from the airport.

Not sure where in Miami you are staying. Nevertheless, you can always hit David's Cafe II (just off Lincoln Road on South Beach) for a late night (open 24 hours) Cuban meal and then walk around Lincoln Road and watch the Halloween festivities..
