When Sox games run late, chicken Oscar and Kobe meat loaf are served until the last pitch as long as there are diners at Big Papi's Grille in Framingham. David Ortiz's foray into the restaurant game has a swingers-meets-sports bar aura. The ample bar area attracts a crowd that's on the prowl. Tuna tartare with plantain chips is a Papi-approved late-night snack.
