Though New York is known as the city that never sleeps, Miami has also earned that title. During the day, we work hard (whether it be at our jobs or on our tans). At night, we play — sometimes until the sun comes up. That means serious bouts of the munchies. When hunger calls after the clock strikes midnight, don't head to Denny's or Taco Bell in desperation. There's some fine late-night grub to be had. Whoever said nothing good happens after 2 a.m. has never had a French salami sandwich at La Sandwicherie in the wee hours.

So here are the ten best places to sate your appetite.

10. Steve's Pizza
After a night of partying (or studying or just about anything), pizza is in order. The trouble is that most late-night pizza is tasteless crap. (Saying there's no such thing as bad sex or bad pizza is a lie.) Steve's Pizza (12101 Biscayne Blvd., North Miami) is highly coveted for its simply divine pies. Thin, crisp crusts are slathered with slightly sweet and tangy tomato sauce before being covered with a blanket of mozzarella cheese. By the slice ($2.75) or the pie (an extra-large that feeds your posse starts at $15.75), this stuff is the real deal. Steve's is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 a.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 a.m., and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 2 a.m.

9. La Moon 
The perfect drunk food has to be La Moon's colossal perro Colombianos ($5.75) and Supermoon perros topped with bacon and a quail egg ($6.99). If you want something to really soak up whatever is still in your system, try the crazy chicken arepa moon burger ($7.95), a chicken patty topped with ham, a fried egg, bacon, and mozzarella on a cornmeal pancake. La Moon also serves superior cornmeal empanadas. The beef and potato are only $1.40 — perfect for when you have only pocket change to spare after a night out on the town.  This is the place to 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 (97 SW Eighth St., Miami) is open Monday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to midnight, Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m., Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 a.m., and Sunday from 9 a.m. to midnight and is closed Tuesday.

8. Yakko-San
It's midnight, and you want something that soothes the tummy and soul. Yakko-San (3881 NE 163rd St.) is totally worth the Uber ride to North Miami Beach for its steaming bowl of shoyu ramen with roast pork ($7.50) or soba noodles ($6). Perk up with a plate of Yakko-San's house-made kimchee ($3.50), or sop up the alcohol with an order of spicy chicken wings ($7.50). Yakko-San is open from noon to 3 a.m. daily.

7. La Sandwicherie
It's 4 in the morning, and you're hankering for some pâté on French bread. Normally, you'd be out of luck until about noon, but not in Miami. La Sandwicherie for years has been catering to the cravings of discerning drunkards, students, hipsters, and in-the-biz workers by offering custom-made sandwiches until 5 a.m. daily. Sandwiches filled with pâté ($8.20), French salami ($8.20), smoked salmon ($8.20), or any other combination of meats and cheeses are made on buttery croissants or fresh French bread and satisfy your sleepless artistic soul. The South Beach location (229 14th St., Miami) is open Sunday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 a.m. and Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 a.m. The Brickell location (34 SW Eight St., Miami) is open Sunday through Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 5 a.m. and Thursday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 a.m.

6. Versailles
If you find yourself jonesing for some local gossip and coffee in the middle of the night in central Miami, look no further than Versailles (3555 SW Eighth St., Miami). For 40 years, this restaurant has been catering to night owls of all ages who enjoy a well-made Cuban sandwich ($6.95) and political chatter. Versailles is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 1 a.m., Friday from 8 a.m. to 2:30 a.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 a.m., and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 a.m.
