Being one of the few late-night spots in downtown SB, you might think The Blue Owl was only meant to be visited after a long night out at the bars. And you’d be wrong. This Thai-fusion restaurant serves food that tastes good no matter where you fall on the sobriety scale. The banh mi is great, and the Thai basil cheeseburger (late-night menu only) is everything we want at 1am.
