Boston isn’t known for its nightlife (though that may be changing!), but even hardworking Bostonians sometimes need a 1am burger or a late-night cocktail to top off the evening. We’ve rounded up some of the best restaurants in Boston to satisfy those after-hours cravings. That’s right you don’t always have to end up at Hong Kong.
