We’ve all been victim to a serious case of the late night munchies. Sometimes, your hectic schedule means your dinner gets pushed back till 10. Sometimes, you could just really use some ribs around midnight. Either way, you’re a wildly sophisticated person who dines like a European. And so to fill your belly at any hour, please enjoy our Top 5 Late Night Bay Area Bites.

Biscuits and Blues

401 Mason Street
San Francisco, CA
(415) 292-2583

In the heart of San Francisco’s Theater District and Union Square, Biscuits and Blues features blues music and far more importantly, jambalaya, gumbo and fried chicken. Get your soul food when your soul needs it most: around midnight and mixed with some harmonicas.

Globe

290 Pacific Avenue
San Francisco, CA
(415) 391-4132

A restaurant industry favorite, Globe serves up fancy fresh food until 1am. Small, sleek and more than a little romantic, Globe’s homemade pastaa and pizzas hit the spot right around midnight. Or really, sometimes you just want a big plate of leg of lamb in the middle of the night. In which case, you’re in luck right around the corner of Battery and Pacific.

Mua

2442a Webster Street
Oakland, CA
(510) 238-1100

This Oakland spot is serving up food until midnight on weeknights and 2am on weekends. Slip into this huge, funky wherehouse space and dive into anything from fried chicken to ceviche. Youthful and fun, be prepared for music, merriment and lots of skinny jean’d, ironic tattoo’d types. Give your folks a thrill and buy mom some lamb cheeks long after her bedtime.

Nopa

560 Divisadero Street
San Francisco, CA
(415) 864-8643

Let’s just call it like it is. Nopa is a very popular girl in our high school right now. Which is why she’s packed at dinner time. Even venerable former Mayor Willie Brown was given a 100 minute wait for a table on a weeknight. Wanna know when you can get a great table at Nopa, still surrounded by buzz and energy and fantastic food? Midnight. Any day of the week.

Oola

860 Folsom Street
San Francisco, CA
(415) 995-2061

Find spectacular food until 1am at Oola, and by spectacular food, we mean ribs. If there is one piece of advice you take from this list, let it be the ribs at Oola. It’s all pretty spectacular at Oola, tho. Amist the ever changing landscape of the San Francisco food scene, Oola remains serving up fine feats during grown-up hours.

Happy dining, insomniacs!
