Perennial or Mado?

Hi all

I just wanted to thank everyone for their help; I had previously posted a thread regarding my trip to Chicago in two weeks and I couldn't ask for more.

So far this is my itinerary with my parents:

Wed: Frontera (have reservations)

Thursday : Tru (this is for me alone; I simply could not convince my parents to splurge this much, but it's no surprise. We live on Long Island and they don't ever go to truly expensive restaurants in NYC, so they weren't going to do it in Chicago. I think they'll regret it, but I know I will have a great time)

Friday : North Pond

Saturday : I plan on making reservations at Mercat a la Planxa.

The real question is for Tuesday night; I can't decide on Perennial or Mado. Perennial's menu seems kind of short and not OVERLY appealing to me, but I've read such good things about it. Mado gets more mixed reviews, but mostly positive. Anyway, so I'm coming to you for help..........
