      not standard diner food:
      24 hour - In DT and SM Pacific Dining Car
      Late- Torung, Thai in Hollywood, Bossa Nova on Sunset, Suehiro in Japantown, Pete's Cafe in DT (Pete's late enough? closes at 2 am I think).

      Lucques has the bar menu
      Mao's Chinese Kitchen
      Kate Mantilini
      The Pantry
      Fred 62
      Polo Lounge for a late night burger
      25 degrees
      Benitos Rolled Tacos on Santa Monica
      Mellow Yellow at the Standard
      BCD Tofu House
      Swingers (I know you didn't want a diner, but the quinoa is damn good alongside an oreo shake... or curly fried)

        Great list, Emme. How about the old 24 hr. Mexican food place when your body's need for grease is overwhelming your neuronic common sense?

        Haven't been yet but apparently the new LIFT on Hollywood Blvd. is (or is going to be) open 22 hours a day and looks as though food is a good step above diner.

          Won Kok in Chinatown is open until 3:00 AM, and has parking. In my youth, that was my go-to place for late night, a nice plate of house special chow fun.

            OMG, Won Kok still exist??? Many nights (or early mornings) were spent there after clubbing many many years ago!!!

              Good grief. Wokcano?? The OP asked for LATE night meals, not his LAST meal in Los Angeles.

              (Plus, the Wokcano in DTLA has not yet opened.)

              My suggestion for you is the same as over on that thread: BCD Tofu House.

                      The only problem with Sanamluang: terrible parking situation.

                        You're right about that, luck has to be on your side.
