Here is a list of 8 late night restaurants to meet your appetite in Manhattan ↓

➀ Empanada Mama L.E.S

This Columbian restaurant is so legit and they serve more than just empanadas.

Location: Lower East Side, 95 Allen St, New York, NY

Nate S. Nate S. wrote: “So you’re telling me at 3 am when I get the munchies I can go to a fully operational casual eatery, grab some quality empanadas with other finger foods, and wash it down with alcohol?! Novel idea.

This spot is popping. Extensive empanada choices on the menu including the Reuben empanada, some made as healthy choices (.ie wheat flour), and a drink menu that serves alcohol until 4 am.”

➁ L’Express

Always an impressive choice with big portions and great atmosphere.

Location: Flatiron, 249 Park Ave S, New York, NY

One of the “classiest 24-hour operations” around, this Gramercy Park “go-to for brunch and late nights” has “that real Paris bistro feel”, from the “bustling” atmosphere to “satisfying” French classics.  — ZAGAT

A 24 hour French cafe that is good for everything from casual dinner with friends, to business lunch, to going face down in a burger at 3am. — THE INFATUATION

L’Express captures the cuisine and vibe of French cooking with an authentic menu inspired by both the Northern and Southern regions of the country. — THRILLIST

24/7 NYC classic… Consistent and reliable, the perfect place to come after a night out. No matter how packed it seems, they’ll get you a table and in no time, you’ll have ordered a nice bottle of red and the lamb burger.

Wo Hop

The restaurant is the true definition of a hole in the wall with no more than 10 tables and “celebrity” photos and graffitied dollar bills taped everywhere. When you get there, don’t be confused → the restaurant is in the basement and it’s the place to be.

Chinatown, 17 Mott St, New York, NY

Roxana I. Roxana I. wrote: “Always get the fried rice. To date, no other Chinese food spot has had better fried rice than Wo Hop. The classic pork fried rice is always a crowd pleaser.”

➆ Coppelia

Cuban cuisine and a bar — a taste of Havana! I’ve heard you can’t leave without trying their coconut ice cream (sorbet). And as a courtesy, they even bake homemade cookies for the taking. So darn delicious…
