We will be dining with a group of 6. My husband and I have been to Mistral on numerous occasions and have never had anything less than a wonderful experience. None of the friends that will be joining us have been to either restaurant. We have looked over both menus and are having a tough time deciding which to go to. Looked at many other options (Teatro, Lucca, Union) whose menus were also very appealing, but narrowed it down to Mistral and Sorrelina. My husband is leaning toward Sorellina because we haven't tried it. I kind of want our friends to try Mistral because I feel it is very straightforward wonderfully prepared food, and we've never taken anyone there who didn't love it. Also wanted to mention that we are headed to a comedy show after dinner and wanted an atmosphere for dinner that is at least somewhat lively but with great food. Since we've never been to Sorellina, not sure what the "vibe" is there, but have heard fabulous things about the food. Thoughts??
