Travel & Leisure got Daniel Boulud, Anthony Bourdain, David Chang, Marco Canora, and Akhtar Nawab together at NY Noodletown so they could gab about their favorite late-night hangs across the globe (unfortunately, no news about what Nawab is doing post-Elettaria). Their New York picks: Yakitori Totto (Bourdain), Sakagura (Bourdain), Wo Hop (Chang), Hagi (Canora), Noodletown (Nawab), and Balthazar, where Ripert hangs out at least once a week. Wonder how Chang would feel about Chris Cheung’s old argument for Hop Kee: “Wo Hop is frequented by people who’ve never eaten in Chinatown before 2 a.m. ... They make a better atmosphere for rowdy drunk people.”
