On a scale of 1 to 10: state your comfort level with drinking torched Old Fashioneds in a church pew.

Oh, and regardless of your answer, you’re doing that tomorrow night.

Good survey.

Furrow your brow for Endive Publik House, a perfectly off-the-grid new date spot with church pews for booths, a piano for a backbar and fried lobster tails for... eating, now open Thursday through Saturday nights in Loring Heights.

This place is pretty hidden, so keep your eyes peeled for an easy-to-miss wooden sign near a long brick building. There’s a door. It leads to what looks like some sort of spiritual adviser’s crash pad, but is actually a tiny restaurant—backlit piano with bottles of alcohol on it. Doors leading to a side garden. Food.

Consider this prime “I know a place” third-date territory. Don’t give too much away beforehand, though. Trust you and all that. Maybe mention it’s got a Kris, the establishment’s lone bartender who melts the sugar in his Old Fashioneds with a blowtorch.

And that they’ve got this one dish where they coat fried chicken tenders in cornflakes.

Sh*t. Now you’ve said too much.
