David Cook is cooking up more than an album these days.

The newly crowned American Idol champ no longer seems unattached as he was captured out on a date with season two contestant Kimberly Caldwell by TMZ over the weekend.

And sorry ladies – he hopes there’s more to come.

“I went out on a date the other day with a woman named Kimberly Caldwell,” the 25-year-old ‘fessed up on Live with Regis and Kelly Tuesday morning. “I did [have a good time]. We’ll probably hang out again. So we’ll see.”

The two dined at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse and David was caught opening the door to the car for his date after the meal.

A correspondent for the TV Guide Channel, Kimberly, 26, who finished seventh in the second season, met David through her weekly AI coverage. He asked her out on live TV on Wednesday’s night wrap-up.
