Concierge: After-Party Options
Keep the festivities going at one of these late-night spots.
Peking Tom’s (25 Kingston St., 617-482-6282, www.pekingtom.com) does not serve the Chinese food of your post-party college nights—the fresh vegetable potstickers, chicken wings in hot bean sauce and small plates of kung pao tofu lettuce wraps are far more refined—but the massive
cocktails may seem familiar. Serves dinner until 11 p.m., appetizers until midnight and drinks until 2 a.m.
At Sel de la Terre (255 State St., 617-720-1300, www.seldelaterre.com), executive chef Geoff Gardner serves up Provençal classics like steak frites with red-wine reduction and adds French twists to American standards: The burger, for example, comes with smoked onions, bleu cheese, spicy aioli and savory rosemary fries. Serves until 12:30 a.m. Wednesday through Saturday.
For the best in Japanese cuisine, take a group to Kaze Shabu Shabu Restaurant (1 Harrison Ave., 617-338-8283, www.kazeshabushabu.com), where diners choose meats and vegetables to be cooked tableside in a boiling broth. Serves until midnight Sunday through Thursday and until 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
