Late-night Cravings

You're hungry and maybe a few drinks deep. Here's where to head (in a cab) for a snack.

City Tap

Late at night, downtown can seem carnival-like, with people from all walks of life wearing too-tight or too-little clothing. City Tap fits into the scene with funnel cake fries. ($5.49). The warm, sweet fried dough sprinkled with powdered sugar is everything you dream of between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m. 748 Prospect Ave., Cleveland, 216-696-2337,

XYZ the Tavern

Soak up XYZ's 100-plus whiskey varieties with a New York-street-style slice from the bar's new venture, XYZ Pizza. The simple extra-thin, extra-wide slices ($5, plus 25 cents for each topping) could feed you and your drinking buddy. Or just fold it like a New Yorker, and keep it all for yourself. 6419 Detroit Ave., Cleveland, 216-706-1104,

Market Garden

Every day of the week, Market Garden Brewery serves a sizable list of substantial snacks, sandwiches and tacos until 2 a.m. Eat like the Germans, and try the currywurst ($9). The thick pork sausage comes doused in a smooth curry tomato sauce with a pile of fries and more curry powder. 1947 W. 25th St., Cleveland, 216-621-4000,
