Annual Manual 2018: Chow After Midnight 

Check out Boise's hotspots for late-night eats

Some people forget to eat until the night's almost over, and on weekends that can mean going to bed both hungry and tipsy. To the hard partier despairing of the lack of after-hours options and ready to call a ride-share: Stay your hand. We've made a list of late-night eateries just for you.

Bittercreek Alehouse

This gastropub stays open until 2 a.m. and the kitchen serves a happy hour menu past midnight. Late-night snacks include a gravy-topped poutine with braised pork curds and fries, salmon croquettes, pork street tacos and more. Sweet-toothed snackers can try the butterscotch-drizzled beignets.

Limited menu after midnight, 208-429-6340,

Dharma Sushi & Thai

This modern American take on Thai cuisine and sushi stays open very late, giving downtowers an Asian option. Dharma boasts gluten-free and vegan dishes, and offerings range from sushi rolls and curry to sandwiches. Plus, its location above Spacebar Arcade makes it a convenient refuelling station in between Ms. Pacman rounds.

Open until 3 a.m. on weekends, 208-918-1274,

Donut Daze

A recent addition to Eighth Street, Donut Daze provides crunchy and colorful options for the after-hours crowd in search of all things fried. The sinful comfort food includes fried chicken, waffles, fries and donuts of various styles. Order a Devil's Food donut to pile guilt onto your hangover.

Open until 3 a.m., 208-576-1876,


For a pick-me-up appetizer of osso buco riblets or lollipop corn dogs, head to Eureka! The menu features a mix of classic American dishes with unexpected twists like the bone marrow burger or the halibut served in turmeric wine sauce. Enjoy modern American cuisine and crafted cocktails.

Open until 1 a.m., 208-286-4410,


Have a quesadilla, some nachos or street tacos made with fresh ingredients to satisfy cravings for spicy, lime-zested Mexican food. Pair your bites with salty-sweet margaritas or sippers of top-shelf tequila.

Open later than any other restaurant in downtown Boise, Piehole offers binge-worthy pizza by the slice at two locations for less than $3, featuring specialty combinations like the potato and bacon and Thai chicken. There might be a line of revelers past 2 a.m., but don't worry about losing your buzz during the wait: Piehole also sells cans of PBR for $1.18.

Open until 4 a.m., 208-344-7783,


Hungrig? Even when the cooks leave, the bartenders at this little German bar can whip up a "wurst sampler mit sauerkraut" or cheesy pretzel roll to pair with a tall stein of the latest rotating pilsner or dunkel on tap. Be forewarned: These German eats might satisfy pangs of hunger, but replace them with a spontaneous desire to backpack through Europe.

Open until 2 a.m., 208-336-9395,


Solid's menu runs the gamut, sprinkling unusual offerings like kimchi fries and risotto bites into a changing roster of classic bar and grill items. Its location makes it a convenient place to rest after a movie at Edwards Downtown cinema or a comedy show at its sister bar, Liquid Lounge. The drink menu emphasizes local wineries and breweries, pouring glasses that pair nicely with mile-high platters.

Open until 2 a.m. weekends, 208-345-6620,

Wiseguy Pizza Pie

It's about more than pepperoni at this downtown pizza parlor. Combinations include the Sad Guy, which features bacon and meatballs; and the White Trash Guy, a slice topped with kettle potato chips and ranch dressing. There are plenty more guy-style slices too, alongside other options like calzones, cheesesteaks and hoagies.

Open until 3 a.m., 208-336-7777,
