Late and long layover at JFK-late night supper suggestions?
Thanks to priceline for the cheap ticket to London, but no thanks for the 8 hour layover at JFK! I am looking for suggestions for a good late supper in NY. The only preference is that its a fun atmosphere and that they may have veg options
The Spotted Pig serves dinner until 2 a.m.
Pulino's Bar & Pizzeria and Minetta Tavern serve a supper menu between midnight and 2 a.m.
I have not been to any of these, but I think Kathryn has, so I hope she'll jump back in to give you her opinion about the food and how lively they would be at that time.
Re: From JFK to Manhattan. At that time of night, barring unforeseen circumstances like construction or an accident, the drive shouldn't take too long.
Edited to make time correction.
What day of the week will you be dining?
I love both the Spotted Pig and Minetta Tavern and they do serve quite late, but definitely check out the menus to see if they are vegetarian friendly enough for you.
Same for Pulino's. My favorite dishes there were the "al forno" ones (none of which are vegetarian) and the pizza was too crackery for my preferences (and I hate the grid they cut it into), so you might be stuck with only a handful of antipasti and bruschetta options on the menu.
In which case you might as well go to 'ino, which has the famed truffle egg toast, and many more vegetarian friendly bruschetta options.
In the opposite direction, you could go for sushi at one of the Blue Ribbon Sushi branches. There's one in Soho and another uptown near Columbus Circle. They both have a selection of 8-10 different vegetable rolls in addition to other vegetarian-friendly options on the menu.

'inoteca Gramercy is open until 1 a.m. The menu has lots of vegetarian-friendly options. We've been there past 11 p.m. midweek, and the dining room was pretty empty. I'm guessing there is probably more late action on Friday and Saturday.
