My boyfriend and I are trying to find a spot for dinner. We want something that is not too casual and not too fancy (boyfriend will likely wear jeans and a button up shirt). We are looking to spend not over $50.00 each (likely splitting an app and a desert and getting our own entrees) but a little cheaper would be better. We're pretty serious offal eaters, and like unfussy food, ideally hearty portions and warm atmosphere. We have mild food restrictions (no caffeine for me, no alcohol for him) so we need somewhere at least a little accommodating. Because of the no alcohol thing brew restaurants are not a great choice.
We had been going to Lolita a lot, but then got pretty addicted to the Green House Tavern. We're a little Green House Tavern-ed out at the moment (wow I sound like a brat, huh) and trying to decide between looking for something new and going back to Lolita. Looking at the menu Lolita looks enticing but maybe there is something I am missing.
Should we try a Zack Bruell restaurant? Momocho? Dante? We live in Lorain County so not too far east please.
