Less than a month after Us Weekly confirmed Chris Evans and Minka Kelly were dating again, the couple stepped out publicly for the first time at Hugo's Tacos in Studio City, California, October 1. (The pair were briefly linked in 2007.)

The casually-dressed couple made no attempt to hide their affection, as Evans wrapped his arm around Kelly's waist before going in for a tender kiss. Later that evening, The Avengers actor, 31, and The Butler actress, 32, were spotted leaving Craig's restaurant in West Hollywood.

Evans was initially skeptical about getting back together with Kelly, a source previously told Us. "She did a number on him him back then," the source said of Kelly, who was serious with New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, 38, from 2008 to 2011. "But she reached out to Chris this time."

Evans — who once dated his London costar Jessica Biel, 30 — doesn't like when a woman plays hard to get. "I hate that!" he told Women's Health in June. "I just don't like games in general."

"I like women who get emotional about babies and puppies," the Boston native added. "I've met some incredibly cool women who are tough, but the woman you marry should have a really soft side."
