Late Night Arrival, Late Dinner

ciesel Apr 2, 2008 09:21 PM

Arriving in Wharf area ( I know nothing in that area) around 10:30 Friday night. Looking for something casual in area or short cab ride away. Nothing fancy, just good food after a long day. Any suggestions.

    Rose Pistola in nearby North Beach might be your best option. It is open till midnight. Here's the link for more info

    Other nearby options but either someone needs to comment on them or give you need to read the links

    O'Neil's Irish pub (2 am) - Fisherman's Wharf (no reports yet)

      Thanks for the feedback, probably give Rose Pistola, or O'Neil's a shot. Depending on how late I get in, maybe try my luck in Chinatown

              CORRECTION -- It has re-opened. It was still closed for vacation a few days ago when I walked by, but my memory of the re-opening date was apparently faulty (no surprise, at my age).

      Globe is open late and they are a quick shot from the Wharf via cab.

        Cafe Maritime is also not too far, on Lombard, and serves food until 1am. From 11pm-1am they run a late night happy hour with a dozen oysters for $13 and $3.50 beers.

          Thanks everyone. I'll definitely report back. Won't be back to Chicago until Friday next week.

            I know the hour's late and my plane is leaving in a few hours, but when I leaved in town for about three months about 10 years ago, I remember a lot of places along Union street. Some must serve food late. I recall going to Perry's (??), about it. Suggestions in that area? If I remember, lot of bars too.

                mrsricho -- Do you have a secret link to everybody's hours? Where are you getting all this good info? thanks.

                  I was just looking up places I thought were open late in Yelp. :-)

                  That info is available in the Chow database.

                  Cow Hollow late night

                    Some hours info is in the Chow database, but it's always best to check the restaurant's site or opentable page.

                      Not really. I have found errors on both restaurants websites, opentable, menupage and yelp. The best thing to do is to call the restaurant to confirm hours. Surprisingly menupages seems to be the most accurate of the other sources these days. Sometimes opentable only has hours for time that reservations can be booked ... that is sometimes lunch hours and often breakfast hours are not on it.

                      Still, what hours are on Chow are far more reliable than what is on Yelp. They have the lowest match up rate.

                        Yeah, calling is best. Some restaurants never update their Web sites. Dopo recently started opening for lunch on Saturdays, and they didn't even update the sign in the window!

                        The Chow database is relatively new so has relatively little out-of-date information.

                After arriving very late due to flight delays, opted for familiar Union street. Perry's was still there. Overall o.k. experience, nothing great.

                Side note, I've read a lot of opinions on this board regarding Tadich Grill. I'm from Chicago, and because of O'Hare we get our share of good seafood at any number of local establishments. You have a gem at Tadich. Not the best seafood I've had (we had sole and sand dabs as advised), but very good as were sides and good efficient service at a reasonalbe price. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

                  Tadich's prices are not unreasonable, but they are higher than those as a number of restaurants that serve higher-quality seafood, for example, Bar Crudo, Hog Island Oyster Bar, Hayes Street Grill, Pesce, and Cafe Maritime.
