The Late Late Restaurant Review

: A bar and eatery dedicated to Ireland's Late Late Show, the oldest late-night talk show on the planet, the Lower East Side's The Late Late offers well-mixed cocktails and a menu of Irish-ish dishes to help prolong a night of imbibing. Best of all, everything is priced to eat: tender skirt steak; a better-than-average burger topped with Dublin cheddar; a plate of bangers and mash. The Tayto Crisp Sambo is essentially a potato chip sandwich slathered in Ballymaloe stout relish, and the traditional Irish colcannon presents a potpourri of mashed potatoes, smoked bacon and cabbage.
