Breakfast: either the most important or least important but arguably most delicious meal of the day—whenever that may be. Post-college, breakfast foods were the go-to drunchie satisfier at the diner—and certainly the next morning—so Boilermaker, the East Village spot rocking shots and beers are adding breakfast dishes to their food and drink lineup with a Midnight Pancake program launching week after next.

It's a great innovation for those of us who can stay up past midnight (just wait, youngin's): get your drunk food fix while keeping the night going. The Boilermaker kitchen'll be griddling up pancakes that go beyond traditional diner offerings, like three-stacks of Red Velvet, S'mores and Apple Pie (all $10) and a savory Potato ($10) topped with sour cream, in addition to a traditional Buttermilk ($8). All the sweet ones come up maple syrup or house-made butterscotch sauce, plus whipped cream for two more quarters.

They're already doing a superlative burger, so post-midnights now include a different kind of sandwich on a potato bun: an Egg Sandwich (with any style of eggs) with truffle aioli for just $5. Add on cheese or bacon ($1) or sausage ($2), or get meats as a side ($4 and $5, respectively). One can also get a jump on brunch by ordering a House Mimosa ($11) with sparkling wine, OJ, curacao, grapefruit bitters and Citadelle London Dry Gin. Or just more shots and beers—save the relief cocktails for when you really need them.
