Last month, I sent a question to all the other writers about late-night dining options in Downtown. There was a lot to be said about The Pantry last week, but today we continue with other options. The following is taken from a casual conversation from the LAist back channels.

(c): Pete's Cafe / 4th and main. Read my LAist piece. Open til 2. Reasonable unless they go for a steak and a bottle of wine. Pacific Dining Car / 6th east of the 110 (look for the cow out front). Never closes. Expensive, super duper old school steak house. I personally prefer Morton's, but you can get a great steak here.

Wathana: I love little tokyo. oomasa is great and serves late. also there are some great noodle bars that are open late.

Kemp: I say Little Tokyo, with Mr. Ramen, Daikokuya and Shabu Shabu House being my picks, in that order.

Jared: An izakaya, a japanese style tapas bar, could work too. There should be several open at that time. Haru Ulala is tasty, bare bones and the Kirin flows freely, but it's a little on the slow side. Izayoi is supposed to be great, a little sleeker and refined.

Carrie: well, if they stay up really late, Clifton's Cafeteria opens at 6:30a. the food sucks but the place itself is so ridiculously awesome.

Malingering: ...sometimes we go to Suehiro after [Dodger] games, it's open late and the suehiro udon is really good.

Callie: e3rd steakhouse is my pick. they serve food until 1am and drinks until 2am - a rarity downtown. entrees are on the pricy side, but apps are fair...and they always have a dj spinning mellow grooves.
