Looking for the best spots to hit up after going out at night. My friends and I usually make the rounds at local asian joints, but I am looking to diversify our drunken intake. Any style of cuisine welcome from taco shops to high end. All of LA.

    Top sirloin and eggs with hash browns (extra crispy) at the Pacific Dining Car downtown.

      If you're out there, Bravo Pizzeria on Main St. in SM is (wisely) open until 3:30am on Fridays and Saturdays. I might have had to nearly fight someone (politely, of course) for their last piece of Cheese Explosion, once (I won.)

      Pacific Dining Car in Santa Monica is also open 24 hours. As is Canter's, on La Cienega, Du-par's at Fairfax & 3rd, and the Original Pantry downtown. Norm's, with multiple locations, is also open 24/7.

      Swingers is open 'til 4am.

      Apparently, I do a lot of late night/early morning dining and tend to prefer greasy food.

        Lots of late night discussion:

        My general rule of thumb: go where the bars are. That clearly points to Koreatown, but oddly enough Hollywood doesn't have that many late night options, not unless you start creeping out a little and heading out to Fairfax and Thai Town.

        My favorite late night spots are Bossa Nova (Brazilian + pasta/sandwiches) and Ruen Pair (Thai). Another one that's really more nostalgic than quality is Canter's (deli). There's also BCD Tofu House (Korean) and Pho 4000 (Vietnamese).
