Trying to decide between two fairly different places to celebrate an engagement. The two places I’m thinking of are Troquet and the Oak Room.

My g/f is very into wine (and I like it, too, I confess) and thought about doing a tasting menu at Troquet with wine pairing, hopefully maybe getting them to “upgrade” the wine pairs for an extra fee.

Oak Room has great steaks and, well, that room! We could have a nice cocktail at the bar before heading in for a dinner in yet another nice room. Old school service.

So, my thoughts are:

Troquet: great wine; perhaps more distinctive food; she’s never been and is into wine; maybe we could get a seat near the window.

Oak Room: one word--meat! Plus that spectacular space. As I’m typing this, I’m leaning towards Oak Room just because of the space.

What are your thoughts? Am I missing something I should take into consideration? This is kind of a win/win situation, no doubt. That’s what makes the decision difficult.
