Chino Latino takes diners on an around-the-world tour of street food-inspired fare: Korean-inspired lettuce wraps, jerk chicken skewers, roasted cauliflower tacos topped with guacamole, crispy pork-ginger eggrolls, steamed chicken potstickers and more, all served in an animated Uptown setting. Served until 1 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday.

Late-night hall-of-famer 112 Eatery cranks it out until midnight Monday through Thursday — and 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday — and its quirky, ever-growing selection is one don’t-miss dish after the next: a gorgeous sweet-sour crab salad, tagliatelle tossed with foie gras meatballs, a peerless steak tartare. You’ll want to keep the luscious butterscotch budino all to yourself.

The gastropub-y fare at Pat’s Tap — served to midnight daily — includes plenty of small-plate wonders, but attention must be paid to chef Matt Gray’s knack for burgers, whether it’s ground turkey topped with feta, or bacon-laced beef blanketed in Swiss cheese and fried onions. The fried egg sandwich is a standard-setter, and an order or two of the tasty house-made cheese crackers is a must.
