Where to Grab a Late Night Bite in the Hudson Valley

When the midnight cravings strike, head to these local eateries for your late night foodie fix in the Hudson Valley.

It’s Friday night. You’re in the middle of a Netflix binge with friends or maybe you just finished drinks at a cool local bar. Out of nowhere, a rumble sounds. Is it thunder? Fireworks? No, it’s just your stomach, reminding you that the midnight munchies are, in fact, a thing. Instead of retreating home to a box of mac and cheese or, if you’re lucky, a slice of cold pizza, hit these Hudson Valley eateries for late night bites that hit the spot and taste great too.

Stop by for prohibition vibes in a dark and intimate setting in White Plains that not only elevates the cocktail scene, but also the local late night culinary options.
