Sometimes a burger and fries is enough to sustain you through a night of serious drinking, and sometimes it's got to be boozy bacon prunes. It is at those latter times that you hope you have the pull to get past the doorman at Bar Marmont, whose list of regular customers still resembles US Weekly's table of contents, because Bar Marmont is everything you could want in a gastropub: ingenious cocktails, intimate nooks and the killer cooking of Carolynn Spence, who was once chef de cuisine at NYC's notorious Spotted Pig. Her menu, while far less offal-intensive than Spotted Pig's, is very close to it in spirit: Italian-influenced small plates include diver scallops in brown butter, a good small wine list and drinks. Lots of drinks. The kitchen stays open until 10:30 p.m. for dinner. And if you discover you need that burger after all, it's a good one.
