The best late-night delivery in NYC

These are the best late-night delivery spots, by neighborhood, where you can order a meal after midnight

By Bao Ong and Time Out contributors

The city that never sleeps is also the city that never stops eating. Our 24-hour access to food is, after all, the reasons so many New Yorkers couldn't imagine living anywhere else. But just because you’re hungry after midnight doesn’t mean you should settle for soggy diner French fries or questionable bar food and snacks. From piping hot empanadas to shwarma and pastries, these neighborhood late-night delivery spots deliver to your doorsteps.

Indulging in seemingly every type of food imaginable, at all hours of the day, is the stuff NYC is made of. Waffles? Check. Huevos Rancheros? Check. Teriyaki sticks, stuffed grape leaves and linguini with clam sauce? Check, check and check.

Park Slope: Daisey's Diner

Restaurants Diners Park Slope

After dark, this old-school Brooklyn diner tends to filled with patrons stumbling in from the bars on 4th and 5th Avenues in Park Slope. If you want to avoid the public display of stumbling, get Daisy’s delivered. You can’t go wrong with the club sandwich and side of fries.

Restaurants Mexican Greenwood

Tacos are aplenty on the menu at this 24-hour Mexican joint in Sunset Park, not to mention fajitas, poblanos, enchiladas, chimichangas…the list goes on. If you’re ordering after a night out, try detoxing with a fresh mango juice.

Upper West Side: Insomnia Cookies

Restaurants Bakeries Upper West Side

It’s called Insomnia for a reason. The most famous late-night sweets in New York require a $6 minimum (plus a $1.99-$2.99 delivery fee) but will bring a box of up to a few dozens to your doorstep as late as 2:45am. You know, in case a bunch of cookie monsters showed up to your apartment for an after-party.
