Wo Hop is open for 18 hours every day, and much more than the food, the real reason to come here is for a classic 3am experience. This place has been around since 1938, so it’s a true NYC institution, where you might see lawyers from the DA’s office and ’80s headshots of former broadway stars. Head down the stairs to eat some fried dumplings that are intensely crispy, and big plates of chow fun, orange chicken, and beef and broccoli.

Suggested by our writers
Spicy Village is not a romantic date spot. Unless styrofoam dishware gets you all hot and bothered. Take your friends, bring a bottle of wine, and prepare to spend $10 a piece on some delicious Chinese grub.
Great NY Noodletown
Great New York Noodletown is a late night eats classic. But beyond that, you can do better.
