Best Late Night Menu (post 11pm)

Want to have a late night dinner/snack at around 11pm on a Thursday night. I heard about Stella. Are there any other tasty options in Boston proper? Don't need anything too fancy, but anything at least a step above greasy bar food.

        Thank you for the Franklin Cafe rec. Prefer near Back Bay. Looking for sit-down restaurant, not counter.

        1. Chinatown used to be open v. late, but since we've had our daughter, it's not something we've done, so I've not kept up. It's not in Back bay, but is a short cab-ride away.


          1. I usually recommend checking out Lucca Back Bay (formerly Sasso) on Huntington. They have very good food, and an appealing late-night bar menu. Interesting space, too. They serve until around 1 a.m.

              Second Lucca Back Bay. Brasserie Jo also serves their bar menu until 1 am.

                Ended up going to Lucca Back Bay - it was perfect for our needs and provided a nice atmosphere in their bar/lounge area. Had the bolognese rigatoni which was delicious. Other dishes were just okay. Thanks so much for the rec!
