Babbo, Bouley or Cru?

In lieu of presents this year, my boyfriend and I have decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner at a more upscale place than we usually frequent. I've reserved at Babbo and Bouley and am primarily deciding between the two, though Cru has also piqued my interest. We're both in our mid 20's and my boyfriend isn't as adventurous an eater as I am. I'm wondering what you think the best choice is for a romantic, but not too stuffy locale with superb but not overly "out there" cuisine. I've lived in NYC for several years now and am constantly chided for not having tried Babbo yet, but I enjoyed the food at Upstairs better than at Lupa...does that mean I should go with Bouley instead?
