We wanted to give you a list of the best late-night munchie spots. That was then. This is now.
Restaurants are curbside, info is iffy. BUT: You want to eat, and they – out there, what your business, so Herbarium LA stuffed ourselves to find the best options for your culinary – err – cannabis delight. You’re welcome.
Let’s go back. Way back. Great burgers, luscious shakes, fantastic fries and nostalgic music that takes you back to 1947 when all our parents worried about was a date for the dance. Carhop service is back – along with take out. West Hollywood, Hollywood, Sherman Oaks and now open in Santa Monica.
OK, with hours of 7 am to 7 pm they might not qualify for “late-night” but if you’re still awake when the sun comes up – or if you have to head Downtown for some random reason — this is your place. So old-school they only accept cash in the restaurant – call your order in. This might be the best idea ever since the line typically stretches around the block. 877 South Figueroa. 213-972-9279.
101 Coffee Shop on Franklin
This funky throwback Diner is open until 3 a.m. – no inside seating yet, but until we can slide back into those brown leather banquettes, treat yourself. Breakfast is served all day. Try the fried egg sandwiches or the No “Huevos” Rancheros with tofu. The mac and cheese dish is infamous. So are their desserts. Order the cake in a jar. Just do it. 6145 Franklin Avenue in Hollywood.
Like it says in the name, 24 – but right now they are open from 9 am to 11:30 pm for take out. Put this place on your “first thing I’m gonna do list” because their bartenders are the most generous around with $15 bottomless bloodies and mimosas every Saturday. Try the BBQ pork sliders or the Big Baller – meatballs, marinara, provolone, Hogie roll, topped with parm and basil.
This long-running food truck with a huge following was rated #1 by LA Weekly. They are known for their $1.25 tacos and their late-night hours; 1:30 am midweek and 3:20 am weekends. The most expensive item on the menu is the all-meat burrito for seven bucks. Plus, they have the real deal Mexican coke. 5300 Olympic Boulevard
Their current hours, open only until 8 pm doesn’t quality for late-night but they do qualify for “Brilliant.” They have Cocktail Kits! All you have to do is add ice and shake for 8-seconds! Ginger Smash, the Besos Caliente, The Billionaire, Ready, Fire, Aim – are all delicious and make you the best bartender EVER. If that’s not enough, this place is selling Essentials and Provisions – eggs, butter, limes, flour, bread, sugar, toilet paper, latex gloves and Champagne! 323-536-9045.
Pair your next Herbarium with one of these options. Everyone is anxious to support our friends and family in the restaurant industry. With these choices, staying home feels decidedly more like a party than like punishment.
