Late nite dining on Westside - Pacific Dining Car - where do you go?

Every once in a while, after an event or for some other reason, I want to dine out past 9pm near my house. Everything on the westside closes so darn early! One place we go for late nite dining is the Pacific Dining Car on Wilshire that is open 24 hours a day. Can’t beat that! Especially if you want a glass of wine with your dinner!
I almost always get the cowboy steak, which is a bone-in ribeye and I think their best cut. I like mine rare.

I generally get their fries and last time got their creamed spinach. Both very good!

Last time, I also tried, for the first time, their lobster mac n cheese. It was way too much food so we had almost all of it as leftovers. I have to say it made awesome leftover lunches, topped with tapatio!

The service is always good, though a little frustrating in their complete unwillingness to recommend anything. Clearly that is on orders from management.
Where to you go for late night dining?

Oh, cool! Will try here, also!!

Bar Toscana. It isn’t open after midnight but a great after-theatre place to have a fine cocktail and really good food. We love it.

Gjelina and the Tasting Kitchen are both open until midnight, every night of the week. The Westside is actually better than most parts of LA for late night sit down dining just because of those two spots.

The Alibi Room also serves until midnight every night, not exactly a restaurant, but by far the easiest way to access Kogi stuff.

And if “late” is just 9 pm or later…whew boy, there is a shit ton of stuff.

Great list!! For me, late is past 10:30. At least. My late night take out is Monte Alban, but sometimes you want to sit down and get served.

Someone in New Orleans raved about the chorizo burrito at Fred62! Got to try!

Great list!! Much to make me think beyond the usual late night choices!!

This has been a long standing late night spot for me. They have an awesome french onion soup too!
