Maybe you've just come in on a late-night flight. Or the movie at the multiplex has ended but your appetite is just revving up. Whatever the reason, it helps to know of restaurants that burn the midnight oil.
Here are three:
THE GOOD LIFE, Massapequa Park
A British accent informs this gastro pub, where the kitchen cooks until 2 a.m. nightly. Worthy of your appetite on the late-night menu (everything but full entrees) are burgers and a fine pulled-pork sandwich.
