Bite Cafe is a sort-of-polished diner attached to the Empty Bottle in Ukranian Village and owned by the same people. It’s BYOB and offers all-day breakfast with hearty portions - for example, the hash comes with brussels sprouts and potatoes and sweet potatoes. The menu’s a little all over the place, but there are vegetarian options for nearly everything, which makes it easy to bring along your vegetarian and vegan friends for boozy brunch or a pre-concert meal.
