Round-the-clock fine dining whatever your reason

24/7 dining typically rouses expectations of low-grade diners and even lower quality. But whatever your reason for a 3am dinner or a 5pm lunch, whether it’s adjusting to the local time zone, a squeezed-in business meeting, or there are simply more restaurants to try than you have meals to eat, fine dining at a time that suits you is fast becoming a reality. Greg Sunning reveals three great spots on our network that are leading the way.


Duck & Waffle, London

Forty floors up in the heart of the financial district, the stellar views ensure dinner bookings are always in demand. Fully open 24/7, 250 staff cater round the clock for breakfasting financiers, late-night nibblers, and all demands in between. Duck & Waffle is a marble-laden homage to contemporary British dining.


Cafeteria, New York

Famously the lunch venue of choice for TV’s Carrie Bradshaw in the Chelsea neighbourhood, this wonderfully monochrome 24/7 venue attracts the in-crowd. The cuisine is American comfort food given a sophisticated, modern twist, whatever time of day or night. Volumes rise into the night, but the menu remains consistently expansive and a cut above.


Oscar’s, Singapore

At the crossroads of East and West, this melting pot of cuisines is open 24/7 on weekends and public holidays to showcase the best from around the world. The famed buffet at this Conrad hotel restaurant exhibits Alaskan king crab, prized London duck, classic sushi, and local specialities.


Why don’t the Michelin stars shine bright late at night?

Early starts and late nights may be the norm in Latin America and the hotter climes of Mediterranean Europe, but late-night fine dining remains the exception rather than the norm, even in Michelin-gilded Tokyo. Sourcing ingredients and transporting staff are obstacles, but all-day dining is becoming increasingly commonplace.
