One 39th Birthday dinner... and I can't decide.

I am the most indecisive person ever. It's probably because I'm a pisces. Anyway, I am trying to find a place to surprise my husband for his 39th, next Thursday.

I was originally thinking Sable. We like good, casual, flavorful food. We celebrated our anniversary at North Pond a few years back. And even though it was fine, we can't seem to remember anything about it. Where as, we remember a simple burger we had at Kuma's years ago. Last year, I took him to Xoco, which he likes. We've been to Frontera a few times too.
So, I thought I was set on Sable. Went back to look at the menu again and couldn't quite find what I liked the first dozen times I looked at it.

Then today, while reading the boards, I read a few good things about Sprout. I know I can get an early dinner reservation which is fine with us since we tend to be early birds. But, now I am having second thoughts about Sprout too. It's a lot more money...
Is it worth it? Is there something else that I should be considering instead? We love food but we aren't the most adventurous eaters(no organ meats). As for cost, Sprout would be on the top end of what I want to spend.
Please help me pick some place my husband will love.
