This is a super-specific request, so I appreciate any help you all might be able to offer.

As the title implies, I'm looking for a restaurant with great food and a full bar that's east of Western. But, for various reasons, not really looking for places downtown (which rules out Church & State, Drago Centro, Gorbals, Rivera, among others). I'm sure there are some excellent divey places in/around K-town which fit the bill, but I'm looking for something kind of, I guess, more date-appropriate (think early date, before you're 100% comfortable wrapping barely-cooked meat in a lettuce leaf, stuffing it with a whole clove of garlic, throwing some sauce on there, and going to town).

All signs point to Little Dom's, right? I agree -- people may be divided about the food there, but I think it's very good and occassionally great. Little Dom's is a good backup, but I'm sort of bored of it.

So, any ideas?
