    Try the Kimcheezer (a grilled cheese made with kimchee) or a savory crab melt. Specials vary daily and ingredients change with what's in season at any given time. The Blue Owl is open late night on Fridays and Saturdays - it's the perfect way to cap off a long night or start a long weekend.

    This downtown restaurant is only open late at night, and it has the solution to all of your problems. And it won't even cost you an arm and a leg! You can get mac n' cheese, waffle sandwiches, fries and tater tots here. Every menu item is under $10. A little hard to find because it's really just a window outside of a bar.

    Rock walls, dark wood, gleaming candles and a patio fireplace set the scene. White, rose, and red are all available by the glass here. Many wines are local, but France and Italy are also represented. And, should you start to feel a little peckish, Milk & Honey has a great tapas selection boasting both meat and vegetarian specialties that are perfect for sharing. Try their brussels sprouts... no really, they're a local favorite!

    Romanti-Ezer serves simple, down-home Mexican food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It's even open until 3 a.m. on weekend nights! This corner restaurant is one block off the main street. It looks like a walk up, but there are also patio tables out back. Romanti-Ezer is known for their mole sauce. Their chips are served with mole and queso fresco. You can also get mole enchiladas or a burrito that's covered in mole sauce.

     First, walk through the front door of the liquor store. Then walk all the way to the back and step up to a tiny window where you can get burritos, burgers, falafels, shawarma and more for under $10. Your order will appear in a matter of minutes, ready for you to take home or enjoy at one of the two tiny tables in the front.
