SD: great hole-in-wall open late?

Last week I was working late in SF. About 10, a friend took me to the Brazen Head in Cow Hollow/Marina for dinner. I had never been there before. It has no sign, accepts only cash, is small and very dark. The well stocked bar (several good tequilas) manned by Jimmy takes up half of the space. It served a very nice steak house kind of menu at about 2/3 the steakhouse price. I have checked the SF board and the SF hounds rave about the Ceaser salad, the veal piccatta, the rib-eye steaks (which I had and thought was great), etc.

Do we have anything like this in San Diego? [It had some surface similarities to Bully's but the food and ambiance was vastly better; imagine veal piccata at Bully's--Not)

    I don't think this fits the bill either, but Sasha's in MB came to mind.

      I think you are thinking of Saska's. Modus serves food till 1am and a late night favorite of mine.

        Saska's, right you are. Guess we know who doesn't live in Mission Beach ;-D

        Tajima on Convoy St. has their "Ramen nights" ramen-only menu every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night from 11 pm to 3 am.

        On top of that it's the best ramen I've yet to find in San Diego!

          Some people like the turf club, I wouldnt know though. The one time I tried to eat there, the waitress took our orders and THEN asked me my age. You have to be 21 to dine there. We went to the Red Fox instead. Which is pretty divey.

            I think the turf club is a great spot. Fun people, great entertainment, and delicious food. I'm sorry you didnt end up staying to enjoy a meal. I'm just curious why you ended up leaving. Was it simply because the waitress asked for you ID again? You should try it again, you're missing out.
