Ubiquitous birthday dinner: Mendocino or Obelisk?

nycreba | Jun 13, 2008 07:23 AM

My boyfriend and I just got engaged last week and now his birthday is coming up. I'd like to take the two of us out to celebrate both events and I'm torn between Mendocino and Obelisk (though Blue Duck Tavern lurks seductively in the background...). We've not been to either restaurant and have heard generally wonderful things about both. Any suggestions on how to make the call? We're not going for "wow" factor as much as we're looking for intimacy, a decent wine list, and an uber memorable meal. Thoughts?
