    To me, this is a very close call, as these are both among my favorites. Both charming, with excellent food...I am thinking hard here and really could not make the choice... Little Owl is a bit more comfortable, perhaps, although both are very tight spaces...I would give an edge to Owl on the service, too, but they run pretty close on the food..

        Agreed. Little Owl is better.

        Little Owl is also more reasonably priced. I had a little sticker shock at Le Gigot.
