Where To Go For Late Night Food In NYC
No matter what you are getting into at night, more than likely you are going to be hungry afterwards. Thankfully living in a city that never sleeps means that chances are a restaurant will be open to curb your after hours appetite. We recently paid a visit to two eateries that caters to the late-night crowd.
This fast casual eatery has created an After Hours program Thursday- Saturday to give diners the chance to experience creations inspired by Chinese late night snacks and street food by chef Lucas Sin. The Northern Chinese cuisine founded by Yale graduates highlight bings, a flour wrap decoded as a “Chinese crepe” and noodle bowls. There are three locations: The original in New Haven, at the corner of Bleecker and Sullivan and near Columbia at 113 street and Broadway. Standouts include the dumplings filled with pork and chives, mushroom and bean threads, and the Chinese sausage fried rice with crispy pork. In addition to eats, Junzi Kitchen teamed up with American Cocktail Company to create a special line of cocktails mirroring Northern Chinese ingredients. Try the Chinese Beer Mule called, Tsingtao ginger mule , involving Tsingtao lager, vodka, ginger and elderflower. And the Mango, Jasmine & Gin featuring Gordon’s gin, Mexican mango, jasmine and lime. Next trip will include the Old Fashioned & Kick that features Junzi’s house-brewed Pu’Er Tea, salted espresso, spiced rum, rye whiskey, soda water, umeboshi, orange twist, and a flamed cinnamon stick.
One of the most quintessential New York activities is seeing a Broadway show. If seeking a little nosh post-theatre head to Ortzi, situated inside the LUMA Hotel. Ortzi focuses on Basque cuisine, which includes meats and fish grilled over hot coals. The stylish eatery was crafted by The Food Network’s chef Jose Garces. Located in Bryant Park, head here away from the crowds of Times Square for savory dishes cooked in cazuelas, Spain’s traditional clay cooking vesse. A Post-Theater menu involves tapas and Sangria. Since its all about sharing, fill your table with an assortment of flavors by first having a glass of Sangria. Order the Albondigas, featuring beef and pork meatballs prepared with onions, green peppers, and tomatoes sautéd with red Espelette pepper. Have the Tortilla Espanola, highlighting Spanish tortillas, salsa brava and christorra, as well as the dry cured Spanish jamon, and Manchego cheese.
