Birthday Dinner, Aldea or SHO Shaun Hergatt?

UWSEater | Sep 17, 2009 05:33 AM

So for this birthday dinner, I'm trying to decide between Aldea and SHO.

We are comfortable at either place, but definitely enjoy eating at the pass whenever possible, so Aldea gets a point up there.
Has anyone had the chef's tasting at Aldea? Is it comprised of menu items, or some off the menu items? Is it set, or could we possibly get different dishes, so we could share them?
Does SHO have a tasting, or just a 2/3 course option?

How do wine lists compare? Decent offerings in the 50-80 range at both places? I didn't see wine lists on SHO's site.

I'm sure we'd be happy with either one, but some last minute help could sway my reservation to one place to the other.

Thanks,
