Sometimes the greasiest spoon serves the tastiest food. So to suppliment our guide to the best late-night food, GO Brooklyn’s Ben Muessig offers his guide to his favorite 24-hour diners:
When the bars let out, Fifth Avenue drinkers load up on breakfast food to make up for the meal they will inevitably sleep through.
Daisy’s Diner [452 Fifth Ave. between Ninth and Tenth streets in Park Slope, (718) 788-1438].
This recently rehabbed greasy spoon boasts a chrome and neon look that recalls a different era — not unlike the fashions of some of the diner’s hipster patrons.
Kellogg’s Diner [514 Metropolitan Ave. between at Union Avenue in Williamsburg, (718) 782-4502].
Hungry Ridgites grub on cheeseburgers with fries, pickles and slaw ($6.95) all day — and all night .
