Diners can revel in chef Landon Schoenefeld's endlessly inventive full menu at HauteDish until midnight Thursday through Saturday. It's a doozy: standard-setting charcuterie, a decadent crab mac-and-cheese, the city's prettiest steak-and-eggs plate and an unforgettable play on the Tater Tot hot dish.

Around the corner, the restaurant that changed late-night dining forever, the 112 Eatery, continues to run full-tilt until 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, and till midnight Monday through Thursday. James Beard award-winning chef/co-owner Isaac Becker and his chef de cuisine Dennis Leaf-Smith continue to cook with an eye toward the eclectic: tagliatelle with foie gras meatballs, frog legs with mustard sauce, a bacon-egg-harissa sandwich. There will be rioting in the streets if the tres leches cake ever disappears from the menu.

At Rye, the kitchen keeps cooking most of its made-from-scratch basics -- Reubens, hot turkey sandwiches, patty melts, burgers, awesome fresh-cut fries, chopped liver, potato-onion knishes -- until midnight, daily. The eclairs? Fantastic.
