Meritage vs Heartland

I'm going to be in St. Paul for a night next month and sadly have to choose only one place to get dinner (arriving at 4pm and leaving at 5am the next morning, so it's a VERY brief stopover). I've been combing the boards here and examining menus and have it down to Heartland or Meritage. I'm from New York so I have a lot of great options here and am looking for something that'll be special to St. Paul (and have food allergies that preclude me from most SE Asian food).

The cardamom-glazed duck and harvest pumpkin soup at Meritage look amazing, however I'm also intrigued by Heartland's menu. I realize it'll be more of a crapshoot there as the menu changes daily, and it seems like they use a lot of hazelnuts (to which I have a severe allergy), but options like their Midwestern Cassoulet and Smoked Lamb Chops look really good.

Anyone have an opinion between the two?
