late night SF eats

Hi,

I'm looking for fairly late night food recs -- around 11pm -- for both a Tuesday and Saturday in SF. We're staying at the San Francisco Hilton but location isn't crucial, good food is. We've already looked at Slanted Door, Gary Danko, but they close too early. Zuni is a possibility -- any other ideas?

thanks for your help!

David

Zuni is open to midnight Tues-Sat so I'd definately consider that.

Two other options:

Ryoko's

619 Taylor Street (between Post & Sutter)

San Francisco, CA 94102

415.775.1028

6pm-2am daily

(Good sushi in a casual environment; a few blocks west of Union Sq.)

Brandy Ho's Hunan Food

217 Columbus Ave.

San Francisco, CA 94133

(415) 788-7527

Dinner:

Monday - Thursday: 3:00pm - 11:00pm,

Friday: 3:00pm - 12:00am, Saturday: 6:00pm - 12:00am,

Sunday: 6:00pm - 11:00pm

(One of my favorite Chinese restaurants in the city; located on lower Columbus, not far from the Transamerica building)

edited to add: The Globe in the Financial District is open until 1:00 am every night except Sunday when it is closed. I haven't eaten there in many years but I think I read a review recently that they had been rejuvenated with new ownership or chef.

290 Pacific Avenue

Maybe someone who has been there more recently will have some comments.

I'm sorry I didn't think about it until VERY late last evening (3:00 a.m. or so) - but on Fridays and Saturdays, Bix is open until 1:00 a.m. and would be a great place to go for some late-night nosh (fabulous tartare!) and a Sidecar.

there is a great place on polk and vallejo called tablespoon (www.tablespoonsf.com) which is open until midnight - when i used to live in that neighborhood, it was easily the only think open after 9:30. the late night eating really is tough to come by here. . .

I just wanted to thank everyone for the suggestions, they were immensely helpful. We ended up going to Brick, and enjoyed it very much. We had the fig and artichoke salad, the foie, the confit buffalo wings, the shrimp and grits, the ribeye, and the fries. The quality of the food was quite impressive. It was a very nice way to unwind after a long and dehumanizing flight.
