1. Bossa Nova
West LA, West Hollywood, and Los Angeles
Bossa Nova is known for its authentic Brazilian cuisine. They have amazing fresh made pasta and homemade artisan pizza. They are famous for their grilled dishes which you can pretty much customize to your liking. Their menu is robust and you won’t have any issues finding something you love. They have delivery options as well, but trust us when we say you aren’t going to want to miss the complimentary Tomato Parmesan Bread with Olive Oil & Balsamic they bring to the table.
2. The Misfit
Santa Monica, California
The Misfit is open till midnight on most days, and 1 am on Friday & Saturday. It closes a little earlier than the others on this list, but it is worth mentioning.

A perfect spot to hit when you are looking for a late night drink and a delicious Crispy Chicken Sandwich or Oysters. They have a ton of unique dishes on their menu and there is something for everyone! Don’t forget to ask your server for your complimentary Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies when you finish your meal.
