Keep this guide handy when looking for where to eat late at night in Miami

We’re pretty sure we all get hungry late at night after some drinks!

This is the scenario: You went out for drinks with co-workers/friends, you went to concert, or a Hungry Post Sunset Party and forgot to eat.

These are spots you’ll need. Some are casual while others you can dress up for. From arepas and croqueticas to ramen and one of our favorite Spicy Rigatoni dishes, you’ll find a little bit of everything on this list.

LA LATINA


Neighborhood: Midtown
Address: 3509 NE 2nd Ave
CuisineVenezuelan

La Latina, located in Midtown, is our favorite stop for all things arepa and tequeños. And after a wild night out, that may be exactly what you’re craving. We recommend the Pelua with shredded beef and cheese or the Rumbera with pork and cheese. One of us is obsessed with the Cachapa, if you’re into sweeter flavors. Make sure you get an order of boliarepas with nata, tequeños or patacones topped with cheese. And don’t skip both salsitas. They have garlic and cilantro aioli that pairs well with everything.

La Latina is open from 9 AM to 10 PM, every day except on Friday and Saturday they close at 4 AM.

MARY’S CAFE


Neighborhood: Coral Gables
Address: 
2542 SW 27th Ave
Cuisine
Cuban

Mary’s Cafe located next to Mary’s Coin Laundry is one of those rare ventanita finds where parking is easy and free. It’s open 24 hours a day making it your spot for late-night Croqueticas and Pan con Bistec. It also doubles as a convenience store where you can purchase Duracell batteries, Alka-Seltzer, cigarettes, and even some halls. Everything you need to wrap up the night. Please note, that it’s cash only.

FLANIGAN’S


Neighborhood: Coconut Grove 
Address:
2721 Bird Ave
Cuisine:
American

We usually don’t talk about chain restaurants, but there is one exception. Flanigan’s or Flanny’s is Miami’s favorite family-run Florida chain that has been around since 1959. If you live in Miami and haven’t been here, it’s probably best; you keep that to yourself.

It’s laid-back, all about the massive plates and lots of deals. No matter what you end up eating, get a fountain soda that comes in a reusable dark green cup with Joe “Big Daddy” Flanigan’s face on it. Leave it in your car cup holder as that subtle sign that you belong in Miami. Or bring it home and use it as the perfect size bucket to bathe your newborn. Trust us, it’s a thing.

Every Flanigan’s is special and of course, there is consistency in the fishing and boating decorations. Our Flanny’s is the one in Coconut Grove but we also like the one on 127th and 88th in Kendall.

Everyone has their Flanigan’s order. Ours is always going to be the chargrilled Baby Back Ribs smothered in their tangy-sweet BBQ sauce with curly fries. We also really like the Pasta Caesar that comes with tricolor rotini pasta and Caesar salad plus an add-on of BBQ chicken stickers.

This Flanny’s is open every day from 11 AM to 4:30 AM.

MOMI RAMEN


Neighborhood: Brickell
Address: 5 SW 11th St
Cuisine
Japanese, ramen

There are very few ramen shops in Miami. Specifically, ones that open up late. Momi Ramen located in Brickell is ready to serve you a warm brothy bowl of noodles until midnight every day. We’d go with the Pork Chasu Tonkatsu Ramen or the Takana Tonkatsu Ramen (if you’re into spicy). Order an extra egg for your ramen and some pan-fried pork Gyozas to share.

VERSAILLES


Neighborhood: Little Havana
Address3555 SW 8th St
CuisineCuban

If you ask anyone to take you to the most iconic Cuban ventanita, 99% will bring you to Versailles on Calle Ocho. This Miami bakery and restaurant is frequented by locals and tourists. Stop by Versailles when you’re feeling chatty and want to strike up a conversation (that might turn into a debate) with a stranger. It might get political with all the personalities that visit this ventanita and you should be okay with that. It’s part of the experience.

We love stepping up to the window and ordering a cortadito. You can also sit down inside and order a full meal. We haven’t done this in a while but if we did we’d go for the grilled Palomilla steak with white rice, black beans, and sweet plantains

Versailles is open from 8 AM to midnight, every day except on Friday and Saturday they close at 1 AM.

LA SANDWICHERIE


Neighborhood: Brickell | Miami Beach
Address: 34 SW 8th St | 229 14th St
Cuisine
Sandwiches

La Sandwicherie takes us back to our early to mid-twenties. Whether we were in Brickell or Miami Beach, this was the sandwich that soaked up all the tequila we had been drinking. Now they’ve popped up in other neighborhoods like Coral Gables, Wynwood, and North Beach. Our go-to sandwich is the SOBE Club with turkey, brie, and avocado. Just make sure to order extra cornichons and their French Dijon-based vinaigrette. You can also buy a bottle of their signature vinaigrette to take home.

JAGUAR SUN


Neighborhood: Downtown
Address: 230 NE 4th St
Cuisine: American, pasta

Jaguar Sun is probably our favorite place in Miami. Some may say it’s a cocktail bar, others, a restaurant with an awesome pasta selection. We’d like to think of it as a combination of both; Where we can always count on fun, original, and balanced cocktails. And where the food is delicious and consistent. Not an easy find in our city, especially in an obscure lobby of a residential building.

It’s the sort of bar/restaurant you wish was in your neighborhood. Come enough times and you’ll make friends with the team that has a deep understanding of great hospitality. Our favorite dishes include the Hokkaido Scallop, the Wagyu Beef Carpaccio with the most delish charred leek aioli, Agnolotti with blue crab, and the Spicy Rigatoni. Make sure to ask if there are any new dishes or off-menu items, sometimes they’ll have something to share with you. Leave room for a Wolf Whistle, their version of a tequila espresso martini paired with dessert.

Jaguar Sun is open from Monday through Sunday from 5 PM to 1 AM, the kitchen closes at 11 PM on weekdays, and midnight on weekends.

OVER UNDER


Neighborhood: Downtown
Address: 151 E Flagler St
Cuisine: American

When you want to be surrounded by neon lights, frozen drinks in plastic kiddie cups, and one of the best burgers in Miami, stop by Over Under.

The Cheeseburger from Over Under reminds us of an elevated version of In-N-Out’s burger. It’s a smash burger with Florida grass-fed beef, American cheese, shredded lettuce, onions, pickles, and a house-made 1000-island dressing. At Over Under, they serve food until midnight.

SWEET LIBERTY DRINKS & SUPPLY COMPANY


Neighborhood: South Beach
Address: 237 20th St suite b
Cuisine: Bar

A classic never goes out of style and neither does Sweet Liberty. This local favorite is located in South Beach, but don’t worry you won’t feel the fuss of the South Beach tourism filling the space.

With the eclectic style of decor and good throwbacks playing overhead, you come to Sweet Liberty not just for the drinks but the overall essence of the bar. And of course Chef Michelle Bernstein’s food menu like the Tater Tots with Japanese mayonnaise drizzle, schichimi togarashi, and furikake; and Michy’s Fried Chicken Sandwich.

JOE’S PIZZA


Neighborhood: Wynwood
Address: 234 NW 25th St
Cuisine
American, pizza

This one goes out to all those friends that have stumbled into Joe’s Pizza after a night out in New York City, and thought to themselves “damn, this slice saved me.” Well, lucky for you This 1975 iconic slice shop has found its way to Miami. We like to keep it simple with the Fresh Mozzarella slice.

Joe’s Pizza is open from 11 AM to 3 AM Sunday – Wednesday, until 4 AM on Thursday, and until 5 AM on Friday & Saturday.

SKINNY LOUIE


Neighborhood: Wynwood
Address: 322 NW 24th St
CuisineAmerican, burgers

The team behind Skinny Louie spent years searching for the flawless smash’d burger. Vibes are cool, laid-back, speedy service, and high quality – Skinny Louie keeps it real with their no-frills smash burgers. The menu has three options, CheeseburgerClassic Burger, and Applewood Bacon Burger, which you can order as a single, double, or triple patty. You can’t make substitutions, but you can remove ingredients, and even make it vegan for +$1.50 or gluten-free (for free, a rare find en esta vida tan cara). Order a side of fries or two to share, and leave room for a Choco Brownie or Strawberry Milkshake (pro tip: use your fries instead of a spoon for their iconic milkshakes).

Skinny Louie is open from 11 AM to 2 AM Sunday – Thursday, and open until 4 AM on Friday and Saturday.

LAS AREPAS DE MARIA


Neighborhood: Wynwood
Address: 2125 NW 1st Ct
Cuisine
Venezuelan

Las Arepa’s de Maria is now open in Wynwood from 7 PM to 11:50 PM. It’s a small cart with the best arepas we’ve ever had. “Bien caseritas”, crunchy on the outside, and soft on the inside. Our favorite was La Colegiala which was the arepa Maria had when she was growing up. It came with salty shredded cheese, Mortadella, and a Dibalito and cheese whiz Venezolano sauce.

THE TACO STAND


Neighborhood: Little Havana
Address2063 SW 8th St
CuisineMexican

The Taco Stand has made its way from California to Wynwood and now with a second location in Calle 8. Inspired by the taco stands of Baja and Tijuana, this spot features handmade tortillas, fresh guac and salsas every day, burritos, fun popsicles, Mexican drinks and beer, and even churros.

This is the go-to spot for late-night eats, the food will literally cure *anything* and bring you back to life. It’s one of the only spots where you can get a true California-style burrito… and one where we don’t mind paying extra for guac.

We loved the Carne Asada Fries and the greasy Mar Y Tierra Burrito. Just a warning—you will need to go to sleep, immediately after consumption.  The Taco Stand is open until 1 AM on Friday and Saturday.
