Best Late Night Dining
The Kettle – If we had been giving Oscar-like statues as part of these awards, The Kettle would have a wall of them. They have won the Late Night Dining award ever since we started giving it, an unparalleled achievement. Night owls, day workers, insomniacs, and the jet lagged all know that this is the place to be when it’s 4 AM and you need something tasty before hitting the sack, going to work, or whatever you’re doing that has you out in the wee small hours.
