With the famous slogan "NY Pie or DUI", NY Pie has tokened itself to be one of the best stops along your ride home from a night on the town in Santa Rosa. Their delicious New-York styled pie is known for it's hand-tossed dough, home-style tomato sauce, all fresh ingredients, and whole milk mozzarella cheese. 

They also deliver until a whopping 3 a.m.! So check out the menu online and give them a call if you aren't looking to drive yourself there during the night. 

Details: 65 Brookwood Ave, Suite 1 & 2, Santa Rosa, (707) 526-9743

Speakeasy, Petaluma: 5 p.m.-2 a.m. nightly

Sure, it looks like an old saloon. And it can be a little hard to find, at the intersection of American Alley and Putnam Plaza, just across from the Petaluma River.

But these global tapas are worth hunting down. The Niman Ranch empanadas speak of Spain, the truffled asparagus with shaved Broncha cow-goat milk cheese and fried farm egg is purely California, and sweet and spicy pork belly over brown rice cake with pickled shallots is a taste of Asia.

Still hungry? How about Mediterranean spicy lamb meatballs in sun-dried tomato sauce, or French escargot with cremini mushrooms in puff pastry with garlic parsley butter and bourbon deglaze.

Jack & Tony’s Restaurant and Whisky Bar, Santa Rosa: 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Thursday to Sunday; 4 to 10 p.m. Monday to Wednesday

The Whisky Bar boasts more than 400 different kinds of Scotch, Bourbon, Irish, American and Japanese whiskies. To eat alongside, the upscale pub-steakhouse impresses with local specialties like chilled oysters on the half shell, and pan-roasted free range chicken with spring vegetables and taragon-Dijon glaze.

Lots of people like to eat at the bar, which features its own menu for bites like deviled eggs, garlic-Parmesan fries, and bacon wrapped sea scallops on risotto.

Comfort food on a rainy day!

Super nachos! French dip! A hot corned beef sandwich! Who doesn’t love that, especially after consuming a couple of beers? It’s no coincidence that this diner is just a half-mile from Santa Rosa Junior College.

The specialties are cheap prices, big portions, and good food to fill a growling belly. The Western cheeseburger of flame-broiled Angus beef is a favorite, smothered in crisp bacon, cheddar and jack cheeses, grilled onions, and homemade barbecue sauce.

And chicken Marsala is a downright feast, bringing a double chicken breast sautéed with fresh mushrooms, garlic butter, and Marsala wine, served with vegetables, choice of potato, garlic bread, green salad, or a bowl of the soup of the day. Finish with a banana split, and go home happy, happy, happy.

The small-batch beers are a treat anytime. And what a delicious recipe for those midnight hunger pangs: a chilled Stone Brewing Company smoked Porter beer spiked with chipotle peppers, plus snacks like deep fried Brussel sprouts or fiery spicy chicken wings, or a hearty bliss-on-a-bun burger made with a half pound patty and crispy pork belly alongside a pile of hush puppies.
