Sometimes you just need a great place to eat during the wee hours. Whether you’re bar-hopping, showing a visitor your favorite Boston nightspots, or find yourself in need of a nosh after staying crazy-late at the office to meet a deadline, our city offers plenty of late-night eating options in 2015. Should you find yourself in an after-hours dining quandary this August, give our top picks a try:
- Eastern Standard Kitchen and Drinks
- Chau Chow City
When you think of late-night dining, pizza slices at a counter and all-night diners probably come to mind. Although these options hold a place in our hearts, they aren’t the only after-hours game in town this August. Eastern Standard Kitchen and Drinks offers Boston revelers an elegant place to eat and drink until 2 am. Eastern Standard’s late-night menu includes options ranging from bar snacks like fried shrimp and deviled eggs to meal-worthy items like Salade Niçoise and grilled flat-iron steak. European influences and an innovative spirit are the driving forces behind this Comm Ave restaurant and bar. The drink list never ceases to amaze, even in the cocktail-centered climate of 2015, and bartenders here offer skill, speed and personality in equal measure.
Chau Chow City is a Chinatown dim sum spot offering Asian fare at surprisingly affordable prices for 2015. Known as a late-night attraction, the restaurant serves up reliably satisfying Chinese food in a lively setting. Large groups are welcome, and it can get noisy — but that’s part of its charm. A security guard prevents bar-goers’ post-drinking festivities from getting too rowdy, but you will find a variety of exciting cocktails, as well as beer and wine, to keep the fun going while you dine on seafood, duck, spare ribs, vegetable-based entrees and countless other dishes. Although its closing time of 4 am is a major drawing card, Chau Chow attracts Boston families with its affordable menu and tasty food during the daytime as well. If you find yourself craving dim sum and mixed drinks after a night at the theater or clubbing this August, head to this local post-partying institution.
