2015 Best Late-Night Dining

Fairsted Kitchen

After 11 p.m., breading and deep-frying tend to compensate for a lack of creativity on most menus. Not so at Fairsted, where themed late-night fare rotates every month. In February it was all things Greek; when we visited in March, Jamaican. The kitchen and waitstaff bring the same attention to after-hours dining as they do to the dinner service, churning out interesting small plates with a touch of whimsy.
