Best place to eat on a thursday night?

gonna go out for a friend's bday and we're looking for some decent dining, i.e. sushi, etc... any recommendations? late thursday night like around 11pm+.

anywhere within 25 mile radius of pasadena/sgv is fine.

  1. Thursdays are great for sushi in L.A.

    Place Yuu is an izakaya restaurant on Sawtelle that happens to serve great sushi. Their kitchen remains open until 12:30AM.

    Place Yuu
    2101 Sawtelle (in the strip mall on the southwest corner of Sawtelle & Mississippi)
    LA, CA 90025

        oops, i didn't see the part about "late" dining. campanile closes at 11:00, i'm not sure about angeli. sorry!

      2. Table 8 has a late bar menu

        Redwood Bar and Grill

        casual, Mao's Kitchen

        Pacific Dining Car downtown

        brite spot in echo park

          I would advise against the brite spot. I haven't been there since i got really ill, they are however open late. For late night dining little tokyo has quite a few places open, try Haru Ulala on 1st St, they are open until midnight and offer a nice variety of food in a casual atmosphere. Or if you are running late there is always china town and full house seafood (hill street) they are open until 3 AM.

          1. re: tooth

            i mentioned the BS specifically because it's open late, though admittedly, i haven't been there in quite some time.

        2. Tranquility Base in downtown opened very recently, I think they said their grand opening will be next month. It's small plates and they serve food until 1am--yippee!! They are open till 2am.

          1. Also, Honda-Ya, another izakaya in JTown in addition to Haru Ulala mentioned above, is open till 1am.
