A late night city like Miami needs some good late night bites.
There's no doubt Miami is a late night town. With a large European and Latin American influence, we rarely think of dinner before 9 p.m. -- long after most of America is in bed for the night. And with a booming nightlife scene, we're thinking of food well into the next day.

When Taco Bell and Denny's doesn't satisfy your late night cravings, try these nocturnal spots.

10. Otentic
This little French gem on South Beach is often overlooked by late night clubgoers in search of a slice of mediocre pizza. That's great for the rest of us hungry zombies who love the fact that this bistro serves quiche ($6.95), farmer steak with bleu cheese sauce ($12.95), and smoked salmon crepes ($9.05) well into the night. Otentic is open until 1 a.m. Sunday thruThursday, and until 5 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.

If we could make the perfect drunk food, it would be La Moon's giant perro Colombianos ($4.95) and supermoon perros, topped with bacon and a quail egg ($5.99). Where else can you get a meal that's salty, fatty, and cheap in a place that's open until the birds start singing in the trees? La Moon is open until 6 a.m. every day but Sunday, when it closes at a respectable 1 a.m.

Give me Steve's Pizza any time. Unpretentious and the service is fast and friendly

She's right about the average American going nite-nite at 9pm. Also the average American is at work before 9am and consumes a meat and potato dinner at 6pm. Why do you think prime time television is at 8pm EST?

Most of America is "in bed by 9?" You really need to travel a bit more, Laine. Either that, or drop the inane assumptions. Miami wouldn't even be in the top 7 or 8 cities for quality late night dining options.

Lain Doss lost some credibility today as a legit food writer.

If you haven't discovered La Baguette on 8th street then you're missing out on the best sandwiches, salads, smoothies and juices open 24 hours in Miami. I have been to nearly all of the places on this list and wont return to any of them, except Versailles or Yambos with tourists, but not for the food. After a long night of Urban Hunting the last thing I want to deal with is lack of service, subpar food quality, and a horrible atmosphere which is what you get with all 10 places listed. 

There's no questioning that one of the best little known secrets of Miami is La Baguette, where the food is fresh, produce brought in daily, and the bros working there always happy to be there serving you good food.

 You mean the place that ripped off La Sandwicherie? Yes, La Baguette is pretty good, but La Sandwicherie kind of did the whole thing first -- and now the original has a Brickell location too.

El Carnal on 8th Street for tacos.  There is also La Lupita in Brickell, but might as well go as authentic as possible.

I think Versailles should be #1... Even the pastries are soft at midnight.
