Special meal downtown for 2: Decca77 or L'Inconnu?

Hi All,
Long-time lurker, first-time poster here!

Im trying to plan a "special" evening with the missus tomorrow (Tuesday Feb. 16th) by going to an Orchestre Symphonique show (at 8PM).
Im trying to find a nice resto for a good & hopefully even surprising meal beforehand (thinking of reserving for 6PM).
Im thinking in the about-80$ range for 2 (sans wine & tax), and was thus considering either Decca77's prix fice at 35$ or L'Inconnu's prix fixe at 40$.

We both have mediterranean blood so we aren't usually moved by Italian restos (had our latest summer vacation in Italy, so Mtl doesn't woo us much in that dept). We love more "ethnic" type cuisine (if I may say it that way) but I want something nice & fresh as cuisine-type before sitting down for 2 hours.
Also -- important point -- my better half is vegetarian.
I thus thought of Takara (in Cours Mont-Royal) but I didn't think it would be as "surprising" as a haute-cuisine meal like Decca or Inconnu. Im not sure though. Also thought of Seingalt and Beaver Hall, but I wanted something more than bistro food.
I'm looking for a downtown-ish location, pretty close to PDA.

Thanks for suggestions!
