Ramen  Ramen Blog  Best Ramen Late Night Fried Chicken Sandwich

One of the best things about the food scene in the city that never sleeps is the variety of great food that is available at pretty much all hours of the day. This fact comes in particularly handy on late nights, whether you’re leaving the theater after a show having only eaten an overpriced bag of M&M’s, binge-watching a TV series and realizing you have nothing (you want) to eat in the fridge, or leaving a bar after last call with a craving for something warm and fried. These restaurants detailed below are solid spots to check out when late-night hunger strikes.

Fried Chicken Karaage at Maison Yaki

At the end of 2019, Greg Baxtrom (of acclaimed restaurant Olmsted in Prospect Heights) launched a late night menu at his French yakitori restaurant also in Prospect Heights. When creating the menu, Baxtrom took inspiration from his favorite late night dishes and post-shift meals. Highlights include fried chicken karaage breaded in a “super crunch” batter and topped with tonkatsu sauce and scallions; a Monte Cristo sandwich featuring housemade brioche French toast, ham, Gruyère and a side of umeboshi jam; and spicy crispy duck wings with Espelette and sansho pepper. Maison Yaki’s late night menu is available Wednesday to Saturday from 10 p.m. to midnight.

Crispy Smashed Potatoes at Devon

Diners at this Lower East Side cocktail bar and restaurant from Oliver and Sasha Zabar can enjoy the full menu until 12 a.m Monday to Thursday and until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. On the menu are shareable plates inspired by the team’s travels in France, North Africa and the United Kingdom. These include pizza fritta with whipped ricotta, mortadella and crispy rosemary; pork katsu with mushroom ketchup and shallot jam; and crispy smashed potatoes topped with sour cream and trout roe.

Late Night Fried Chicken Sandwich at The Loyal

Offered at chef John Fraser’s upscale neighborhood brasserie in the West Village, this massive sandwich was specifically designed with late night dining in mind—something to coat the stomach that’s big enough to share. It’s made with fried chicken, mustard, lettuce, smashed avocado, mayo, dill, parsley, red onion and secret sauce slathered underneath the buns. The late night fried chicken sandwich is available at The Loyal until 12 a.m. Sunday to Thursday and until 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. 

Mac & Cheese at The Penrose

This mixology-forward cocktail spot in the Upper East Side serves classic late night bites daily from 12-2 a.m. On the menu you’ll find comforting plates like mac & cheese (featuring smoked Gouda, fontina, scallions and breadcrumbs, served molten in a cast iron skillet), poutine (featuring hand cut fries topped with Cheddar cheese curds, brown gravy and smoked bacon as an optional add-on) and a house burger (featuring a custom Pat LaFrieda patty blend).

Vegan ‘Pastrami’ Reuben at The Bonnie

Chopped champion Nick Testa takes no shortcuts in making his vegan ‘pastrami’ Reuben, a standout on the late night menu at this neighborhood hub in Astoria. The sandwich is made with house-smoked seitan, sauerkraut, chickpea-based Russian dressing, cashew provolone and pickles on marble rye. For the seitan, Testa starts with a basic brine of sugar, salt, mustard seeds, peppercorns and bay leaf, then adds fresh beet juice to the brine to achieve the reddish-pink color of pastrami and cures the seitan for 36 hours. Afterwards, the seitan undergoes a 36-hour cold smoke with hickory before being tossed in a classic pastrami-style dry spice rub. The Bonnie’s late night menu is served nightly from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Crispy Delicata Rings at Parker & Quinn 

The Refinery Hotel’s signature restaurant is open all day and serves food from breakfast to late night, with an array of options available until 11 p.m. on Sundays and Mondays and until 12 a.m. Tuesday to Saturday. On the menu are starters like battered squash rings served with “beetchup”, flatbreads, salads and mains like a French dip sandwich with Gruyère, caramelized onions, horseradish aioli and miso au jus.

Spicy Shrimp Ramen at Būmu

Momofuku alum chef Joaquin (Quino) Baca’s recently opened izakaya-style restaurant in the West Village unfortunately closes its doors in just a few days, with its last dinner service this Sunday, February 23. Diners who stop by this weekend can enjoy Būmu’s late night menu, served Thursday to Saturday from 10:00 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. On the menu are Japanese-inspired small plates only available during late night hours like cucumber seaweed salad and crispy potatoes with spicy mayo and smoked tobiko, plus noodle dishes like spicy shrimp ramen in lobster broth and uni mazemen.
