marc forgione, wd-50 or ko?

SO is taking me out for my bday dinner next weekend and we have it narrowed down to these 3 (already have rezzies at each). I've done a ton (probably too much in fact) of research and just can't seem to decide. The tasting menu at marc forgione sounds absolutely delicious, and I've confirmed that they'll allow certain substitutions/additions that also look interesting. wd-50 has always been on my radar, but the wildly dissenting/inconsistent opinions about the food have always rendered it a second/third choice. I enjoy molecular cooking, but not where it equals style over substance (as many have claimed wd-50 is/was). in terms of ko, what is there to say? was able to secure the tough reservation, and the food looks/sounds delicious. I dont really care about the ambience, as long as the service doesn't detract from the experience, so thinking only of the food and drinks (talking cocktails here, although will probably go to a cocktail lounge before/after so its not of paramount importance), which reservation would you pick? Thanks in advance for the help!
