yes, i know they're very different in style...but we are coming in from NYC for the weekend and have reservations at both, one on friday and one on saturday. we'd like to just pick one and focus our energy on that. which would you choose? we are more concerned with the quality and, um, interestingness of the food, secondarily a well-chosen wine list, and probably the third ranking consideration is warmth of service (just want them to be nice and attentive; perfection is not our interest).
if it makes a difference in the quality of service, we have the last seating at manresa, and either 6:30 or 8 at la folie.
