Dovetail or Bar Blanc?

I’ve been going back and forth between having dinner at either Dovetail or Bar Blanc. While I understand the ambiance will be different at the two, I was hoping to get some opinions on the food differences. I’m guessing by the space that Bar Blanc is a bit more trendy, but again, correct me if I’m wrong please.

Thanks in advance…

  1. You are absolutely right, the ambience is different, as is the clientele, which is generally younger at Bar Blanc. I have been to both several times, and they are among my favorite restaurants. Choosing between the two is difficult. Both have interesting, innovative cooking. I would just go with whichever one has the more appealing menu for you. But whichever you try, be sure to keep the other in mind for a future time.
