4. Beachcorner Bar & Grill

 One of my favorite Mid-City hangs, the BeachCorner, is the best place for a hamburger before bed. They are known for their 10-ounce Beach Burger but stop here if you want some delicious Cheese Curds and Broccoli Bites. You can elevate your late-night burger by getting a Black and blue Burger. 

Their Kitchen is open Until, so make sure you have a backup plan in case it is super late, and they are closed.

If you are looking for some elevated menu items, stop into The Bombay Club. With Indian Street Tacos, Shrimp and Grits, and a Dirty Martini Salad donning the list, this is the perfect place for a nightcap and snack before bed. 

6. Breakaway’s Restaurant & Bar

Looking for comfort food, look no further than Breakaway’s. Your taste buds will dance after eating the beef daube made with beef tomatoes, gravy with delicious persillade pasta, or a beef dabe debris poboy. Stay for a late-night cocktail and get one of the Slo Blitz Snowball cocktails.

nothing is better than grabbing a delicious French crepe to fill your stomach. Whether you want sweet or savory, Crêpes à la Cart is open until 1 am. It might not be a fine dining establishment, but I love a bacon and Nutella crepe for a late-night bite. Even the menu says, ‘Trust us.’ A Crepe is perfect for late night dining.

At the edge of the French Quarter on Frenchmen Street is one of my favorite places to grab a late-night bite. Dat Dog is open to Midnight on weeknights and 3 am on weekends and is the perfect place for a late-night snack. I cannot skip out on a hot sausage hotdog when I need something to put in my belly. The colorful outdoor seating adds to the lively atmosphere, making Dat Dog a go-to spot for night owls searching for a satisfying meal.
