Late night bite at La Sandwicherie

By: Jennifer Agress

Taking over Miami Beach every December, Art Basel Miami Beach is undeniably the art world’s most revered event—and it sparks a slew of art fairs and parties that run until the wee hours of the morning. After they’re over, you might find yourself craving a late-night bite. Lucky for Miami diners, the city has plenty of places that serve food long after midnight. From taco trucks and pizza counters, to a famous Cuban restaurant, a sandwich shop and more, read below for some of our favorites.

Versailles Restaurant is a critical part of the Miami food scene, especially in Cuban culture. First opened in 1971, this Calle Ocho mainstay has become known for its expansive menu, heaping plates of Cuban food and Versailles Palace-inspired decor. (Think: golden chandeliers and lustrous mirrors.) On the way home from Art Basel, stop here to fill up on Cuban favorites like deep-fried ham croquetas, medianoche sandwiches, Cuban bread, sweet plantains and flan. Versailles is open until 2 a.m. every Sunday through Thursday, and until 3:30 a.m. on Fridays and 4:30 a.m. on Saturdays.

    Hosteria Romana

    Sitting on picturesque Española Way—a European-style street in the heart of South Beach—Hosteria Romana makes diners feel like they’re eating dinner in Rome. It stays open until 1 a.m. seven days a week, and has a rustic setting, traditional Italian music and Italian classics like different kinds of bruschetta and calamari, bucatini alla amatriciana, carbonara, gnocchi, pizza and so much more.

      La Sandwicherie

      If you’re craving a light and healthy late-night meal, head to La Sandwicherie! As its name implies, this fast-casual Miami haunt is known for its made-to-order sandwiches, which are served on crisp baguette bread and come packed with fresh vegetables and La Sandwicherie’s house French vinaigrette. Perfect for those Art Basel Miami Beach parties, the South Beach location has an outdoor counter that stays open until 5 a.m. daily. If you’re on the mainland, try the Brickell location, which has the same hours and sits on 8th Street.

        Pizza Bar

        Located at the end of Lincoln Road, where 16th Street and Collins Avenue meet, Pizza Bar serves the largest pizza slices on Miami Beach. (Slices actually come in “XL” sizes.) Whether you choose a specialty pizza or design your own, each one is baked to a golden-brown crisp, has a thick crust and is topped with Pizza Bar’s secret San Marzano tomato sauce. It’s open until 2 a.m. every Sunday through Wednesday, and until 5 a.m. every Thursday through Saturday.

          Cheeseburger Baby

          When it comes to comfort food, there’s nothing better than a good, old fashioned, greasy burger. Miami’s oldest burger joint, Cheeseburger Baby, has just that! Located right in the heart of South Beach, Cheeseburger Baby is a no-frills place that serves signature, made-from-scratch plates like the Applewood smoked bacon cheeseburger with a fried egg, chili-cheese fries or its famous Philly cheesesteak. Cheeseburger Baby is open until 5 a.m., Sunday through Wednesday, and 6 a.m. every Thursday through Saturday. (Insider Tip: During the weekend, expect to wait in line.)

            Bodega Taqueria y Tequila

            Bodega is a Miami late-night staple. From the outside, it’s just an open-air taco stand—but walk through a suspect bathroom door, and you’ll find a speakeasy-style nightclub that locals love. The taco shop stays open until 5 a.m. nightly, so when hunger strikes, go here for your favorite Mexican dishes: like burritos, six different kinds of quesadillas, tortas, guacamole, paletas, and steak chimichurri, al pastor, barbacoa or pescado tacos.

              Big Pink

              Myles Chefetz, the man behind the Prime franchise, is somewhat of a restaurant legend in South Florida. A stark contrast from the upscale restaurants he is known for, his retro-style diner, Big Pink, has long been a go-to for a late-night feast in South of Fifth. Here, expect a menu of more than 200 plates piled high with more food than you could crave. Think: an all-day breakfast menu with omelettes and smoothies, buckets of chicken wings, cobb salad, buffalo chicken pizza, skillet mac and cheese, 19 different burgers and so much more. Big Pink stays open until 5:30 a.m., Thursday through Saturday, and until 2 a.m. on Sunday.

                Sweet Liberty

                Sweet Liberty

                After a night of Art Basel parties and art shows, swing by Sweet Liberty and you won’t be disappointed. Known as a bar first, the food here is top notch. Choose from a thoughtful menu of home-cooked classics like buttermilk-fried chicken, pimiento croquetas, Maine lobster “hot pockets” and Sweet Liberty’s signature cauliflower nachos with avocado crema, green chilies and pomegranate. Go here any day of the week and get food until 4 a.m.
