La Sandwicheri

The Alibi
Deliciously deflect a hangover with the gratifying bar fare at The Alibi, tucked inside Lost Weekend. The South Philly cheese steak, jammed with thin slices of rib eye, is arguably the best iteration south of Pennsylvania, or opt for a fried shrimp po’ boy with Creole mayonnaise. Its truffled fries, meanwhile, will set you for a game of pool or another round at Kill Your Idol next door. 5 pm–5 am; 218 Española Way, Miami Beach, 305-674-3448;

Chow Down Grill
The new Alton Road location is prime real estate for after-midnight noshing. Dimly lit, with dark coralred walls behind the bar, the place dishes Chinatown-inspired goodies such as handmade shrimp dumplings with fennel, corn, and squid ink dough, and tea-smoked duck in a spicy Szechuan sauce with almonds. 12 pm–5 am (opens at 4 pm Sunday); 920 Alton Road, Miami Beach, 305-674-1674;

8 oz. Burger Bar
Hit 8 oz. for a variety of luscious, high-quality burgers and toppings (grass-fed beef and Humboldt Fog cheese, for example), and other lip-smacking creations such as a grilled cheese sandwich stuffed with short ribs, red onion marmalade, and Bel Paese. To drink, take your pick from an extensive selection of microbrews and fun beer cocktails (like the Drunken Monk, a mix of Chimay Triple, St. Germain elderflower liquor, and fresh mint over ice). 11:30 am–2 am (5 am Friday– Saturday); 1080 Alton Road, Miami Beach, 305-397-8246;

11th Street Diner
Located in an authentic 1948 Art Deco dining car, the 11th Street Diner is a timeless icon on the Beach. Open at all hours, with a special late-night menu, it’s the go-to spot for the city’s variegated nightcrawlers, whether they’re looking for breakfast, burgers, Southern fried chicken, or a sizeable Cobb salad. The French vanilla and cookies and cream milkshakes are legendary. 24 hours; 1065 Washington Ave., Miami Beach, 305-534-6373;

This industrial chic eatery pleases the Midtown and downtown drinking crowd with affordable food served late and relatively fast, including its signature buns (wrapped around juicy beef brisket), barbecue ribs, and flavorful noodle bowls. As a palate-refresher, try the local seasonal fruit peppered with chili and a nice cold glass of rosé. 12 pm–3 am (5 am Friday–Saturday, 12 am Sunday); 3470 North Miami Ave., Miami, 305-573-1520;

La Moon Restaurant
This popular Colombian diner off Brickell is always right for an indulgent meal before the sun comes up. Ravenous eaters go for its famous Supermoon Perro, a massive hot dog generously topped with chorizo, bacon, a quail egg, and your choice of five sauces. Down it with some refajo, a combination of beer and sweet Colombiana soda. 8 am–6 am (12 am Monday– Tuesday); 97 SW Eighth St., Miami, 305-379-5617;

La Sandwicherie
Grab an outdoor stool at this French-owned sandwich counter—a South Beach staple that’s satiated local revelers since 1988. Opt for a heartily filled pâté baguette (with extra cornichons) or the croquemonsieur (ham and cheese melt), if you prefer something hot. Wash it down with a fresh mango smoothie or a shot of espresso to gear up for that final nightcap at Mac’s Club Deuce across the street. 8 am–5 am (6 am Friday–Saturday); 229 14th St., Miami Beach, 305-532-8934;

The Lost and Found Saloon
One of Miami’s more idiosyncratic eateries, Lost and Found specializes in robust and tasty Southwestern food and hard-to-find beers like Sea Dog Blueberry Wheat Ale, served in an intimate space accented by hand-carved wood and a playful cowboy tavern feel. Fittingly, drinks are served in Mason jars, and its smashing burritos (loaded with anything from pulled pork to pepita-crusted tofu) annihilate late-night pangs. 11 am–3 am; 185 NW 36th St., Miami, 305-576-1008;
