Restaurant Review Kitchen 24

L.A. isn’t exactly the city that never sleeps, but thanks to its newest acquisition, Kitchen 24, late night dining just got a lot more fun.

Kitchen 24 is definitely unique to the City of Angels – dare I say, even a little New York? The restaurant is similar to the Big Apple’s infamous Cafeteria, while offering a more upscale experience with even less fuss. 

The wall-to-wall booths and bar stools are undeniably retro, but this one-of-a-kind diner would rival any Hollywood hotspot – the chandeliers are made of silverware and the servers sport pink pants and polo Ts. As if that weren’t enough, the restaurant features a full-bar with an amazing list of specialty cocktails, as well as a DJ spinning an eclectic mix of classic and contemporary hits Thursday through Saturday night. 

As the name would suggest, the menu offers an impressive array of new takes on old favorites 24 hours a day (dinner is only available from 5pm to 2am). From egg dishes to an Ahi tuna burger, no craving will go unsatisfied. The sweet potato fries are killer and the Smac and Cheese is out of control, combining cheddar, mascarpone, and gruyere with
peas and a basil herb crust.

The service was fantastic and the entrées were surprisingly fancy in presentation at a more than affordable price. The meatloaf came wrapped in a savory pie pastry, topped with mushrooms, green beans, and tomatoes, and the sides were mysteriously as good as the main event. Even the veggie burger was homemade from spiced garbanzo beans. 

Surrounded by bars and clubs, the innovative eatery is certainly ideal for the late-night crowd, offering a much better alternative to after hours than L.A. has seen before. While the 2am-4am rush might be too much for the average patron, there is something to be found for everyone without worrying about a reservation. Wind down from a night on the town or stop in anytime for a cocktail and a side of bacon - K24 sets a new standard in eating out when the rest of the city goes to bed.
