After a couple decades' hiatus, Sfuzzi is back on McKinney Avenue, the late night Italian eatery and nightlife spot that Uptowners are lauding as the new place to be. DJs spin all night long, drinks are slung over the sexy bartop until two, but partygoers leaving the likes of Blackfriar and the McKinney Avenue Tavern at last call can still come to Sfuzzi for a slice of pizza all the way 'till three in the morning.

2 Rock N Taco
Another new locale in Uptown is Rock N Taco, adjacent to the nighclub Aura and owned by the same guy. The brightly colored decor is almost as attractive as the scantily clad servers, and menu items such as the Red Hot Chili Pepper Calamari and the Elvis Brisket Tacos are available late night Thursday thru Saturday.

Of course, depending on your cravings, breakfast may be your desire for a late night feast. That's where Avanti Ristorante's Moonlight Breakfast comes in, available from midnight to 3 a.m. on weekends (dinner menu is also available.) Enjoy a night at the Dallas Symphony, and then hop over to Avanti for some Eggs Benedict or some Lobster and Crab Ravioli.

Still more variety for your fourth-meal tastebuds, Lower Greenville Avenue's Nandina offers Asian Tapas and sushi, from tuna tartare to shrimp tempura and Yakitori chicken. If you've got a big appetite, go for the lamp chops with wasabi cabernet sauce. The best part? Nandina is open until 3 a.m., seven days a week

5 Village Burger Bar
This excellent burger and beer joint couldn't have a happier home than the West Village. Surrounded by happenin' bars like Social House and Lemon Bar, as well as a ton of shops and the Magnolia Theater, you can almost hear the stomachs growl. Get down on one of their signature burgers (try the Southwest Turkey Burger!), or go for some lighter fare, like their Florentine Panini with mushrooms or Spinach Salad with raspberry vinaigrette
