Jay Perlman, CEO and founder of this uber cool clothing line (which you can also find on Jetset Times SHOP) gives us a list of guy-style, late-night grubs that deserves one giant high-five!

From a luscious taco at Don Pisto’s in Telegraph Hill, all the way to Lower Nob’s Korean deliciousness at CocoBang around 2 a.m., you’re guaranteed a good time in the City by the Bay. Fist pumps included.

1. Don Pisto’s

2. Chubby Noodle 

2205 Lombard St, San Francisco, CA 94115, United States (map, website)

One of the best brunch spots in the city. If you’re looking for a lively Saturday, start here and see where you end up in the end of the day. Ordering the garlic noodles is a must.
