restaurant or bar between studio city and Encino that serves food till 12am

I need a restaurant or bar between studio city and Encino that serves food till 12am on a Tuesday (tomorrow) They need to serve booze, have decent food and be under like 30 an entree. Thanks in advance, i know this is a tough one. Also there will be like 11-12 of us.

  1. Depending on your definition of "decent" food, Mexicali on Ventura should work.

      Yea, they are alright, that could be a good option if nothing else, i assume they aren't open yet so do you know by chance how late they serve? Anyone have any other thoughts?

    2. I always get yelled at when I mention Jerry's Famous Deli on CH, but the advantages of the Studio City branch for your situation are:

      a) they're open 24/7
      b) they have a full bar
      c) it ain't Providence but I think the food is better than average for a large-volume restaurant
      d) they have a large and varied enough menu to make 11-12 people happy

      There's also a JFD in Encino, but I don't think it has a bar and I don't know if it's 24/7.

      1. I think Laurel Tavern serves that late. But you will be hard pressed finding a space for all of you together.

        1. I think they'll be OK at Laurel Tavern at 11 on a Tuesday- not much for vegetarians however.

            anyone by chance know for sure how late laurel serves, i mean i honestly didn't like it at all when i went but it could be a good option. These are some good options guys, thanks.

              According to their website, the kitchen closes at 11 pm but the bar is open till 2 am:


              I agree with your disappointment, and as stated above you will likely have a problem fitting your group into the place.

              Laurel Tavern
              11938 Ventura Blvd, Studio City, CA 91604

          2. Casa Vega in Studio City is open until 1 or 2 a.m.
