Veritas or SHO Shaun Hergatt?

Hello Manhattan Chowhounders:

I am a one-time-per-year Manhattan visitor and I'm faced with the nice problem of trying to eat at great restaurants and trying to sample different restaurants. I have had excellent advice from this board in the past and have been guided to Babbo, Gotham Bar and Grill, Jean Georges, Eleven Madison Park, Momofuku Ssam, Minetta Tavern, Scarpetta, Gramercy Tavern, Hell's Kitchen, Pylos. The last two restaurants were good and the others ranged from excellent to stellar. I and a friend are coming to New York in a few months and I'm trying to pick some restaurants. Right now I am planning on dinners at Keens and Convivio and looking for two others. One of the two will be Veritas or SHO Shaun Hergatt. Can you please give me opinions on those two and/or a direct comparison? I would also appreciate any advice about outstanding dishes. My friend is not that adventuresome an eater, but I am trying to educate him by easing him into some higher end restaurants. I am looking only at dinner (normally I just grab something for breakfast and lunch). I will have another specific question about our fourth dinner once I narrow things down a bit. Thank you very much in advance for your assistance.
