Trying to decide which to chose for a birthday celebration. I have eaten in most of Boston's most upscale spots, but for this birthday I'm looking for something French/New American themed just a touch below the top tier, and have heard great things about both of these places. Always thought of Troquet more as a wine than food place, but a friend's recent raves made me reconsider.
Where is the food better, and (not necessarily correspondingly) where do you think I will have a more enjoyable meal?
