Eat Right, Even Late Night, in Boston

When you get a late night craving, or just a late start on your night you can still get good eats in Boston. Area hot spots offer diners the chance to enjoy menu highlights and specialties after many area eateries close.  Beyond the greasy spoons, many tough reservations to get give diners a chance to walk in after the crowds die down.

Starting at 11pm on weekends you can enjoy ramen at upscale Uni, but only until they run out, which they always do before they close shop at 2am. Bite into a perfect pizza at A4 in Somerville where the wood fired delights come out bubbling on top with a crisp, charred crust and are available until 1am every night. Chow down on bar food at JM Curley where a burger and snacks are a bit more than basic and offered to guests until 1am. Take a seat at Gaslight where their well composed menu is offered until 12am and is filled with French bistro favorites. If southern cuisine is your thing then Estelle's late night menu will make you happy. Or indulge that late night salt craving with Chinese food at one of the best,  Chau Chow City, that will fill you up anytime until 4am. 

Boston may not be known for late night dining, but new options are popping up from top spots all the time.
