Need food really, really, really late? Bossa Nova (7181 W. Sunset Blvd., 323/436-7999, www.bossafood.com, daily 11 a.m.–4 a.m., $10–20) can hook you up. A big menu of inexpensive entrées can satisfy any appetite from lunch to way past dinnertime at Bossa. Some of the dishes bear the spicy flavors of the owners’ home country of Brazil, but you’ll also find a ton of pastas, plenty of salads, and classic Italian-American build-your-own pizzas. Check out the desserts for some South American specialties if you need sweets after a long night out at the clubs.
Not near the Sunset Strip? Bossa Nova has three other L.A. locations: one on Robertson Boulevard, one in Beverly Hills, and one in West L.A. If you’ve made it back to your hotel room and aren’t inclined to leave again, Bossa delivers!
