Barbone, E.U. or Brown Cafe tonight

I realize these three have little in common, but they're all under consideration for tonight. Can anyone help me choose? It will be just two of us, dining around 9:00. Thanks!

  1. I haven't been to Brown Cafe. I also haven't been to Barbone in about a year, but I would pick it over E.U. My last visit to E.U. the food just wasn't worth the cramped atmosphere and annoying crowd (guy yelling and clapping to 80s music seated at the table 4-6 inches to our right, for example).

    1. Barbone is really good-- and sometimes excellent (stick to pastas, agnolotti being especially good). The garden is nice, service mediocre-- but at the price point it's alright.
