Help - Blossom or Counter?

I am trying to decide between Blossom or Counter to celebrate my birthday this weekend after the theater. I have read mixed reviews and am not sure which way to go.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!

    Blossom has a quaint, romantic townhouse dining room. Counter is a buzzy, modern bar room. Hard to choose between the cuisine, although I have enjoyed Blossom slightly more. I'd choose on the basis of what kind of atmosphere you prefer.

      Tough call, but I'd compare menus and then see what you're leaning towards:

      vs.

      Counter seems to have slightly more to choose from, but it's hard to beat Blossom's chocolate ganache!

      And to make things even trickier, is Candle 79 an option? :)
