Rostang or Tour D'Argent for the canard au sang?

Dearest hounds,

My husband and I are going to Paris in November and I'm working out the menu details. One of the things we wanted to do on our honeymoon last year - but didn't manage to fit in- was getting a pressed duck, canard au sang. I'm determined to do it this year or bust.

We discussed going to Normandy to get the duck, but this is such a short trip that we really don't want to spend a whole day getting out there by train and back, especially when it'll be getting dark so early. So I've got to stick to Paris.

So my question, for those of you who've done the duck, or just in terms of general preference - La Tour d'Argent or Michel Rostang? Do I have other options? We've never been to either establishment, so I have no baseline.

(For context: we'll also be eating at Guy Savoy, Auberge Pyrénées Cévennes and Au Petit Sud Ouest.)
