Fish (Urban Dining) or Daniel's Bistro?

JustJake | Mar 15, 2012 03:59 AM

A friend has invited us out this Saturday for dinner (a belated birthday outing). A few months ago, he shared a review (Ledger?) on Fish. I've heard very mixed reviews that swing to both sides of the spectrum. AP has a notorious rep for underperforming yet charging a King's Ransom for food.

It's my 'call' as to the restaurant, yet his treat. Now, I've heard great things about Daniel's Bistro with the reviews being very consistent to the positive side. I'd like to dine there.

Plus there's a healthy sized fish menu at Daniel's (our friend has lost considerable weight and is intent on leaving it off). Price wise, the entrees are pretty much the same though Daniel is ala carte. I presume that the vegetable 'sides' are for one diner (and I've heard they're prepared wonderfully as well).

The long and short of it is that I'm sensitive in spending someone's dollars for dinner regardless of his recommendation in picking a place, anyplace. Other positives I see is that Daniel is a BYOB (and I look forward to visiting my favorite bottle shop should most commentary lean towards Pt. Pleasant).

Help! Honestly.......free me of the cognitive dissonance I'm encountering.
