It was only 11pm when I finally left the airport with arriving friends, and I knew I was in trouble.
I know there are some places in Millbrea, but I had to pick up another friend in Menlo Park. I wracked my brain… and ended up at Gravity in Palo Alto. They were cordial and the kitchen was actually open, unlike Old Pro which claims 1am on the website but doesn’t honor it.
Many of my other favorite late-side places are in San Mateo. There’s all the izakayas, which mostly close at 11:30pm, and there must still be a HK place.
( Curse Yelp for just having the “business hours” when so many bars have food, but you can’t tell from yelp if the kitchen is open ).
What are your favorites, midnight and later?
