For a city that doesn’t sleep, New York never seems to have enough late-night or all-night dining options to satisfy the cravings of graveyard shifters and the hung-over. News of two new Brooklyn possibilities in this department arrived today in my inbox.
Campo De’Fiori, a Park Slope purveyor of authentic Roman-style pizza, will be offering up its savory pies between 11 p.m. and 1:30 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays beginning November 18. Just the sort of thing to get your teeth into after a movie or before heading out to a club.
As a get-acquainted offer, the restaurant is giving away free samples of its pizza Matriciana, contadina, and focaccia with salame, ham, and cheese tonight, November 17. And you don’t have to stay up late to avail yourself of the offer, which runs from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Campo De’Fiori, 187 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn, 347-763-0933.

How bad does a restaurant have to be to serve breakfast around the clock? It has to be B.A.D. (all caps), which is an acronym for “Breakfast All Day,” which applies only if burgers are a breakfast food. Here they are, and as proof positive you can get your twin patties served topped with two eggs, bacon, and jack cheese. Another section of the menu subtitled “Eggsotic” features matzoh brie, a claim that not many eateries can boast.
I have no problem with a restaurant listing ice cream soup among the desserts, but if they’re going to do that, they should serve the standard-issue childhood fantasy, which is melted ice cream in a dish, not some concoction with cubed bananas, lychees, and too much more. B.A.D., 131 Grand Street, bet Bedford Ave and Berry St, Brooklyn, 718-384-7273.
