Looking for a place to eat late night...

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.

  1. 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.

    1. 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.

        there's a couple places in little tokyo that stay open super late. haru la la and the japanese diner etc., king taco, canter's. i love sanamluang for late night best tho!

      2. 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?

              Drink... I mean research. Yeah, research.

                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 .

              2. There are a bunch of 24 hour places... if you Google Open 24 hours Restaurants Los Angeles.

                    Yeah - Both Thai places and they're next to each other same side of the street.

                  2. 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.

                    1. 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.

                      1. Close to you in K-town is Hodori which is open 365/24. If you are ever down in the South Bay the Kettle is also open 24 hrs. a day and if you are down in the OC Harbor House with locations in Sunset Beach and Dana Point serves 365/24 also.


                        1138 Highland Ave
                        Manhattan Beach, CA 90266
                        (310) 545-8511

                        Finally right downtown is the Original Pantry. Also 365/24 (the doors have no lock).


                        1. minotaur
                          serves tapas and has a wine bar
                          333 Culver Blvd., Playa Del Rey 310-306-6050
