Masa or Bamboa?

Both of these restaurants sound interesting to me and I'm not sure which to pick for a dinner in town (I don't get into that part of Boston/South End much). I love fish/seafood & hubby eats pretty much anything. We both enjoy spicy. Any recommendations &/or comparisons would be wonderful.

  1. Easily Bomboa. Truly interesting, original food. French technique and pretty dynamic Brazilian flavors that show the fascinating Portuguese/Moorish/African sides of that cuisine. Duck breast with tamarind gastrique and a cocoa-scented malanga puree. Awesome ceviche. Mahi-mahi draped over a Bahian stew called caruru, made with smoked shrimp. Mmmm. Plus, the room is fun and the drinks are awesome. Masa is good, but predictable.
