I really like the winter menu at Seasons, and Connor's is nice in cold weather with the warm fireplace ambiance and consistently great food. I'm taking my wife to Foothills Milling Co in a few days, so I'll report back.... We are very excited!

The most consistent quality steaks I’ve had in recent times are Lakeside Tavern. I mean, besides the ones I cook for myself.

I’ve kind of come to the position that when we go out and eat I’ll order something other than steak.
I can be a lot pickier if I select the cut myself and cook it myself.

Looking for suggestions. Future wife and I will probably be going out later for food and drinks....mainly drinks. Wheres a good spot in Knoxville to go thats not super expensive, but has a nice variety of beer, and a nice environment? We seem to always end up at the be same spots, but I would like to try something new.

Wife and I go to Schulz Brau a lot. Might be a good choice if you've never been.

Asia kitchen, walker springs and Kingston pike. Awesome Asian restaurant with an expansive menu. I had the beef with leek and Thai chili and it was superb. Huge portion for the price. My new favorite Asian restaurant.

Another standout Asian place is Asia Cafe off Callahan. I avoided the place for years because it looked sketchy, but it honestly has one of the most diverse menus in Knoxville and every dish I’ve had so far is outstanding.

Checked out their menu and will give them a try. What I liked about Asia Kitchen was their authentic dishes on the menu. The clientele were about 80% Asian. With pork belly, beef tendon, and pork intestines on the menu I knew I had found authentic Asian. FWIW a Chinese friend recommended the restaurant.

I believe the Central @ Callahan is currently closed. They are building a new location on Callahan that appears to be close to opening.

Where you guys going for V-day Thursday or this weekend? I've been trying to find somewhere new, but may end up going back to lonesome dove.
We don't go out for V-day -- after only New Year's Eve, it's the second-worst day to go to a nice restaurant. I usually cook something nice at home.

For the weekend, consider J.C. Holdway, Oliver Royale, or Emilia in the downtown area. Any of the three should suit your better half.
