There are moments when you just can’t stop craving meals late at night. Luckily for residents of New York, the city that never sleeps has plenty of spots for late-night dining.

In this video, we’ll list five late-night dining eateries in New York City.

1. Floridita

First on this list is a Cuban Dominican restaurant that has been operating in Washington Heights since 1995. Floridita is open 24/7 and has a plethora of options for your late-night cravings.

Aside from their Cuban sandwiches which are the highlight of their menu, their bistec, rotisserie chicken, and several burgers are also must-tries. If you happen to find yourself in Inwood late at night, they also have a second branch that’s also 24/7 in the area.

2. JG Melon

Speaking of burgers, JG Melon is another restaurant that serves mouth-watering and palette-pleasing burgers. The spot started in 1972 with the concept of being a “saloon with food” and has blossomed into a restaurant since then.

Their selection of burgers, turkey sandwiches, and roast beef sandwiches are perfect bites to satisfy your midnight cravings. From Monday to Saturday, the bar stays open until 3 a.m. and not 24/7, so just make sure you get your late-night cravings just before they close.

3. Empanada Mama

If you’re looking for a spot that serves more “complete” meals, Empanada Mama, a Hell’s Kitchen restaurant operating 24/7 and its assortment of empanadas, is one you should consider. Their empanadas, coming in all sorts of sizes, also vary by the flour they use. They have wheat flour empanadas, corn flour empanadas, wheat baked empanadas, and even a handful of dessert empanadas.

They also have other dishes like their Grilled Chicken with cheddar cheese, guacamole, and pickled jalapenos. Overall, Empanada Mama is one of the safer picks on this list, thanks to its expansive menu and variety of flavors.

4. Court Square Diner

If you’re craving breakfast meals at 2 a.m. in the morning, who are we to judge? Court Square Diner, a 24/7 restaurant, may be the option for you. They’re bound to have a majority of the breakfast dishes you’ll probably look for, such as omelettes, french toast, Belgian waffles, and burgers and sandwiches.

For dessert, they have ice creams, milkshakes, puddings, and other desserts baked fresh daily at their location.

5. Papaya Dog

Last but definitely not least on this list is Papaya Dog, one of the cheaper, commercial, and accessible spots on this list. Their menu is limited to hot dogs, hamburgers, and stray fish sandwiches, which are perfect for late-night splurges.

While their dishes aren’t healthy, they are effective craving quenchers, and their simplicity guarantees satisfaction.
