Looking for a place to eat late night...

tvnguyen Apr 13, 2007 10:39 PM

that closes between 11-4am. Any suggestions? Anywhere around LA is fine. I live in downtown. I'm willing to drive out any direction. Any type of food welcome.

    Sanamluang Thai is open until 2 or 4am daily. There's one on Hollywood Blvd. in Thai town or one on Sherman Way in NoHo.

      I recently had a great experience at Bossa Nova on Sunset. Brazilian comfort food is probably the best way to describe it, with a great selection of salads, sandwiches, pizza and pasta.

        Pacific Dining Car is open 24/7 and there is a location downtown as well as one in Santa Monica. Pretty decent steak house if that's what you are after.

          My friend and I ended up here one night, late late late one night (or is that early in the morning?), and I have to say that their service was excellent, even though we were the only two in the restaurant and my friend kept falling asleep on the table.

          Egg dishes were okay - nothing special, but definitely much appreciated at that hour.

            Do they really have sommelier on staff 24 hours a day? What would he/she do from 2am to 8am?

                That, I did not find out, since the last thing I wanted at 4:30am was more alcohol. Maybe next time.

                  Oh, and I might be mistaken, but I think that the Du-pars at the Farmer's Market next to the Grove is open 24 hours .

                    Head out to Alhambra or Monterey Park to capitalize on the late-night specials. All the HK style cafes close after midnight, and many seafood restaurants close really late also.

                      On Thursday night we ate at Hungry Cat after the Ahmanson. We had a 10:15 reservation and when we got there, it was still very crowded. When we left around 11:45 there were still lots of folks there. They serve till midnight on weeknights, maybe later on weekends, check the website www.thehungrycat.com.
