Trying to make a decision and hoping some of you (opinionated) experts will be able to help. ;-)
I have reservations at both Il Casale and TW Food for a birthday dinner next weekend. I've been wanting to try both. Price is irrelevant--where am I going to have the better dinner and the more pleasant overall experience? I should add that one of my dining companions happens to be my mother, who gets testy if service is slack and requires some "lighter" options on the menu (at least a couple things that aren't drowning in butter/cream).
So which reservation do I keep, and which do I cancel?
