Birthday Dinner: Hatfields or Bin 8945

This 'hound is picking a spot to celebrate his birthday, and my thoughts tend toward exploring something new in this town.

This leads, of course, directly to Hatfields and Bin 8945.

Frankly, the menu at Hatfields seems more along the lines I might enjoy, while the menu at Bin 8945 seems a bit quirky, but also offers a few things I might like.

Wine on the other hand is tipping this geek toward Bin 8945, which really has some interesting and very fairly priced older bottles on the list and presumably on tap.

I know a few of you have been to both - can you help me pick between the two? There will likely be 2, 3 or 4 of us. Thanks in advance.

  1. So I can't be completely objective since I've never been to Bin 8945 BUT I do luve me the Hatfield' has a lovely low key atmosphere and the food is devine...I'm not sure if my original posting made the leap - it was definitely a rave!!
