Yesterday, I got home from working late and stumbled upon something really interesting. I was hungry, it was 1:30 in the morning, and I was scrolling through GrubHub’s suspect list of restaurants open for delivery late at night.
Nina’s Trattoria, yes the little BYOB in the Italian Market, was hidden amongst all the chinese takeouts and gross pizza parlors. I called to make sure they were open, and to my surprise, somebody answered. I ordered my food, it came within the hour, and the bliss I felt chowing down on their penne bolognese with a side of meatballs at 2:30 a.m. is a feeling you can only experience for yourself.
David Neukirch, one of the two brothers that own Nina's explained, "working in the industry, you get out late at night, and you end up eating junk. So we're giving people some good food to eat late at night." He mentioned that they'll soon be adding to the late night menu as well—pizza to be specific.
They're open late for delivery Tuesday-Sunday until 2 a.m. on weekdays, and 3 a.m. on weekends (Nina's encourages placing your order before 1:45 a.m. on weekdays, and 2:45 a.m. on weekends, and a call ahead won't hurt either).
Sometimes, good news just falls in your lap.
