The usual way to ask this question is: what's a good spot for late night eats?
But I have something slightly different in mind. I want to create a kind of decision tree for late night dining based on the best few places open at that hour.
So what are the three or four best Bay Area places open during the following time slots?
10:00 - 11:00 PM
11:00 PM - 12:00 AM
12:00 - 1:00 AM
1:00 - 2:00 AM
2:00 - 6:00 AM
Obviously, different folks will construe the meaning of "best" differently--the best by an absolute standard, the best that fits their idea of "late night" grub, the best in an area they're willing to travel to late at night, etc.
So do you love Grubstake? Luka's? Is there great pho in the Mission at 3 AM? Is there a burger in San Jose worth a late night flat on 880?
Don't be shy with the responses. What's being solicited is not necessarily the latest discovery (though that's welcome), but more of a collective brain dump.
