Bar La Grassa keeps cooking until midnight Monday through Thursday, and to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday. In their vibrant, fun-loving restaurant, James Beard award-winning chef Isaac Becker and his adventurous crew turn out some of the most imaginative pasta and charcuterie in town.

The Anchor Fish & Chips serves its exceptional namesake dish until midnight Thursday through Saturday, along with a first-rate shepherd's pie, a ground pork pasty the size of a football, an excellent burger and addictive mushy peas. Nothing over $11.

At the Lowry, the instantly popular Uptown outlet of the Blue Plate Restaurant Co. (the powerhouse behind the Edina Grill and the Longfellow Grill, among others), the served-until-2-a.m. menu includes oysters, a half-dozen snacks (bacon deviled eggs, jalapeño cheese curds), a curry-and-peanut garnished turkey burger and a scrambled eggs-hash browns breakfast platter built for two.
