Hi, I'm sure that this has been posted one hundred million times, but I'm looking for a restaurant this weekend (Friday night) for dinner. My pseudoboyfriend normally works until around 8 (just in case this matters at all), and we're both have expensive tastes on a minature budget (I'm temping, he works at a bike shop).
He also rarely ventures outside of his West Lakeview neighborhood for food, and I (the suburbanite, augh) want to get him to break out of the mold a bit.
We're both a bit adventurous, but I'm looking for a place to have a good meal, good conversation (not necessarily lookin' for high romance here), pretty good ambiance, and something a bit different. Oh, did I mention we're both broke? BYOB is fine.
Any suggestions you'd have would be wonderful.
