You can't do it every day. Not even every week. But sometimes you need to have a certain dessert?you know, "that dessert".

What should you do when your tummy rumbles after all the "good places" have shut down for the night? Fortunately, the metro area offers plenty of options besides inedible tacos and convenience store delicacies. Walt Bodine is joined by our Food Critics for a look at the best places for a decent late-night meal, plus all the latest Kansas City restaurant news.
