Bacaro or Local 121, which is better

Any feedback which of these new restaurants has better food/atmospher for a special occasion? My favorite restaurant is Chez Pascal, but we were just there a few weeks ago, seconded by La Laiterie, but they don't take reservations.

  1. We have had very good meals at Bacaro the two times we have gone.Have notmade it to Local 121.

    1. Don't know if your occassion has passed, but...No comparison is really possible between the two. Bacaro is a fine dining restaurant where the food is really the star of the show. If the person being honored at this occassion is a "foodie" Bacar is a unique and awesome experience. The more people you go with, the more different wonderful things you can try. 121 is a beautiful space and the food is good, but in a different league that what you will experience at Bacaro. They will take a reservation, by the way, for 6 or more,

      things you can order and share, the better

      1. You might want to do a keyword search for Bacaro on this's getting decidedly mixed reviews.
