Izzy’s is a Westside staple and one of the only full-service restaurants in Santa Monica that’s open 24 hours. Walking into this Wilshire spot on a late Saturday night is like stepping into a random diner on the Upper East Side. Expect elderly couples reading the newspaper and eating matzo ball soup, workers filling up on big plates of eggs before a night shift, and underage kids who are still a little too drunk to be seen at their parents’ house. Get the turkey pastrami.
