Ten Best Late-Night Eats in Palm Beach County

Like most any place, South Florida takes on a completely different look and feel late at night. In cities like West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, and Delray Beach, it's generally after the bustling happy hours have given way to dancing and drinks or when the snowbirds turn in after early bird dinners. It's late night -- when the streets are filled with hungry patrons looking for a place to sit, tuck a napkin into their shirts, and find some grub to soak up all the booze.

The best options always seem to be the ethnic spots, tiny pizza joints, retro diners, or hipster dives. Occasionally, it's a sit-down restaurant touting a special after-hours menu -- or that thing of beauty, the reverse happy hour. Need help finding a spot near you? Here, Clean Plate Charlie presents Palm Beach County's best late-night dining spots.
