Biscuits just work for late-night noshing. The satisfying simplicity of comfort food is great no matter what meal of day you choose to observe. Throw some gravy or spicy chicken on that biscuit and you’re set. Empire Biscuit serves up just that, and they do it well. So well, in fact, that they ran out of biscuits the first few nights they were open, causing short-lived biscuit-deprivation hysteria among the fooderati in NYC. And if you need a little kick to keep you moving or to jumpstart your day, they serve primo Blue Bottle coffee.
