L'Violon closing temporarily, now what?

I just received email from Catherine Constant, cancelling my reservation for 4 of us for my 50th birthday party in two weeks! :-( They are undergoing some unexpected repairs, and are closing the restaurant (not sure for how long, but apparently it is fairly major infrastructure work)....

They are offering to make us a reservation at Bristol, saying the food is comparable and noting that Frechon used to be at Crillion with Constant. They are also offering to provide the champagne for the toast as an apology...

Should I take them up on this? Obviously, only two weeks isn't a lot of time to decide, though the big day is a weeknight (Wedn) do the two compare, both in terms of cuisine and price? (we had eliminated some three stars based on Violon being at the high end of our budget)....
