When inviting someone out for a b'day meal, who 'should' pick the restaurant? - the host or the guest?

I've seen this handled both ways (the host picking (or selecting a few options), and the host asking the b'day guest to pick) and I'm wondering what your standard method is and/or if there is a 'correct' method according to normal social graces.

I see the upside of asking the b'day guest to pick as choosing a spot they either have been wanting to try and/or something they'd enjoy

I see the upside of the host picking as a way to control costs and perhaps location.

Thoughts?
