“I like to eat at places that are still open after 10 o’clock because that’s the schedule I’m on. Even after midnight, this cosy sushi spot always serves fresh fish for sushi and sashimi flown in daily from the Sea of Japan, and both Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.”
“I go straight for chef Michael White’s iconic strozzapreti (elongated hand-rolled pasta) with uni and crab at this ‘little Italian bar’.”
“There are no frills at this Chinatown joint for Asian comfort food, such as the duck soup with egg noodles (below). It’s open almost 24/7, convenient for me and you’ll catch the city’s most interesting night owls here.”
“All the wood-fired artisanal pizzas here are crafted from slow-fermented dough, and topped with ingredients fresh from the market. I get the Popeye with pecorino, gruyère, mozzarella, spinach and garlic.”

“I love fish. Order the Chef’s Tasting Menu (below) for the full experience of caviar tartare, lacquered lobster tail with black truffle emulsion, chef Eric Ripert’s iconic poached halibut, and more.”
