I'm trying to find a nice but not obvious date place, you know too fancy or pretentious, somewhere on the eastside (echopark/silverlake etc). Ideally it would be a cool more neighborhood type of establishment. As far as budget it's a bit open but for that one special girl I have my eye on I'd be willing to go up to 150 sans drinks, yikes that's a lot of money but ideally it would be a lot cheaper so less pressure/attitude. Asian Fusion or Italian would be great but whatever it is I want something, tasty, unique and different. As far as Italian I like La Bucca (spelling?) by Paramount Studios but want something a bit more fun. Also a cool low-key place to have drinks in that part of town is something I need to find. Nothing too hipster please. Just getting back into the dating game and know nothing about that side of town so any advice on spots would be helpful.
