Best Spots for Late Night Eats -- opinions from locals? [Philly]

Sadly, I don’t have any trips planned in the near future, but still am curious about your opinions.

Franky Bradley’s potato skins with brisket and horseradish crème fraîche sound pretty damn fine.

How about Varga Bar? Duck confit wings?

The Good King Tavern? Or Royal Tavern’s bacon mac n cheese burger looks crazy, yet enticing…
