South Beach’s 7 Best Late Night Eats

The 7 Best Places to Eat in South Beach AFTER 3 a.m.
September 17, 2013 By Matt Meltzer in Miami: Food & Restaurant News  | 4 Comments

We’ve all been there: Walking out of a club a solid two hours past they close in your hometown, not realizing that the dinner you ate at 7 p.m. wasn’t going to be enough to hold you until sunrise. And while grabbing the first slice of pepperoni-grease-dripping pizza you walk by always seems like a good idea, South Beach is better set up for late-night dining than most places.

So keep this article up on your phone, and pick one of these 7 spots - listed South to North - when you get done partying tonight. Assuming you can read it.

Big Pink
157 Collins Ave.

If you’ve lived in Miami long enough, you’ve ended a night a Big Pink. You may not remember ending the night there, but you have. The Big Pink burger has soaked up more South Beach alcohol than Lindsey Lohan’s liver, and they’ll serve you that or any of their bible of food items until 5 a.m. Then again at 7.

710 Washington Ave.

For the foodies who need to grab a “quick something” when that flight from Paris gets delayed 5 times, they get in a 4, and 7-11 just isn’t cutting it, there’s the French bistro Otentic, where you can get a $16 filet mignon, foie gras, or escargot Bourgogne until 5 a.m.. Because nobody should have to go without Escargot because of a little “mechanical error.”

11th Street Diner
1065 Washington Ave.

If you have a large group that loves a good late-night fight over where to get food, and that trek down to Big Pink is just a liiiitle too far,  there’s the 11th Street Diner. It’s a dismantled-and-reconstructed art deco dining car from the 40s that lived in Wilkes-Barre, PA before it, like everyone else, retired to Florida. The late night menu’s got 15 kinds of burgers plus fried chicken and breakfast all day, and even salads for that guy who refuses to eat carbs after 8 p.m.

La Sandwicherie
229 14th St.

Most Miamians will tell you Publix has the best sandwiches in the city. You know what the problem with Publix is, though? They’re not open when the bars let out. Good move on their part, but bad news for you. Your next best option: La Sandwicherie, open till 5 a.m., 6 on weekends,  who have intelligently located themselves across the street from Mac’s Club Deuce, a bar with a Happy Hour that starts at 8 in the morning. Conveniently, also when La Sandwicherie opens. So you can fuel up with fresh baked bread, fresh meat and veggies, then go get your 2-for-1 on across the street.

Pizza Bar
1627 Collins Ave.

Late night pizza is almost as ubiquitous in South Beach as silicone implants and foreclosures. But Pizza Bar not only has a full, extensive menu well into the wee hours, their Kiss of Death wings are the hottest in Miami, so you can see how far liquid courage can really take you.  An added bonus: We have yet to spot one cockroach at Pizza Bar, a claim no other late-night sliceria can match.

2000 Collins Ave.

For that friend who insists on eating healthy, even when she’s 15 appletinis deep and ditched her high heels in that Persian dude’s Bentley, here’s your best late-night option that won’t have her dry-heaving in the morning out of pure guilt. The sushi at this sushi den-turned nightclub is top notch, and served until 5 a.m. daily. Try the Honeymoon roll: crab salad, shrimp tempura, cream cheese, avocado, and scallions, topped with walnuts, coconut, and honey.

Charles Street
2000 Collins Ave #7

You know what goes down especially easy at the end of a long night? Most of the girls you meet at Automatic Slims. But also Sliders. It’s like a whole burger, but, like, somehow it’s not as big. Which means either A) you won’t feel like a complete fat-ass in the morning or B) You can eat a lot more of them before you feel like a complete fat ass in the morning. Maybe better to go with B at Charles Street, where you can try braised ginger short rib sliders, chicken parm sliders, tuna sliders and more until 5 a.m.

Steve’s is in North Miami and Palmetto Bay. Not exactly accessible to an out-of-towner of just generally-drunk person walking around South Beach at 4 a.m.
