and if you could compare it to other restaurants that would be helpful. we're taking a friend for her birthday, and she was thinking maybe BLT fish, but i can't tell if they have a raw bar upstairs. is the downstairs platter decent? she's been to aquagrill a few times before, so she would rather try something new, but we all know they have the most selection. is balthazar really ridiculously touristy? and blue ribbon grill, how is the variety on the platter? jack's luxury oyster bar seems to get mixed reviews. it will be dinner for 3, so places that give 2 of each thing isn't great either.
i've been reading posts all night and can't seem to come to a concensus. i feel like everyone is just voting for the one restaurant they go to (not having been to the others). so anyone that can offer insight after having been to a number of places will be my hero!
