Late night bite to eat on LES?

I'm looking for a fun place to go tonight around 11pm near the Thompson LES hotel for a late dinner/drinks.

          These are all great - thank you! Sorella looks amazing. Anyone been to White Slab Palace??

            Yes, in March, before they started serving food, so with our drinks we were served a little dish of blue cheese, crackers, prosciutto and figs, which was very nice. I had a Bloody Beet, which is a Bloody Mary, only with beet juice instead of tomato juice. Shockingly, it was very good! Although I think it should be called a Bloody Olga or a Bloody Svetlana. The bar stools are ridiculously tall. And the floor is concrete, which makes me uneasy. Nice place, though.

              Well liztish, I was just there last evening, and though I appreciated both the decor and intriguing selection of beers on tap, my friend and I were treated to a spit-punctuated verbal bashing by a "gentleman" who the barkeep indicated was one of the proprietors.
              He seemed to have been upset that we didn't want to engage in some drunken banter with him, nor continue to absorb his repeated spraying. Lovely.
