Fig, Tratatoria Lucca, Cru Cafe or Muse?

I wanted to take the birthday girl somewhere she's never been before (she's lived in Charleston for years) and thanks to your recommendations on this board I have it narrowed down to 4. Which of the four do you recommend?

    I was in Charleston last weekend with a friend, and we went to each of these except Muse. We both thought both Fig and Lucca were wonderful - I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite: the service was really special at Fig, and it is a bit noisy at Lucca, but they were both top notch. Cru Cafe seemed a lot more casual, and didn't strike me as special.

        I also live in charleston and have tried FIG twice and the food was so-so. I love eating at the chef's bar at Cru and Trattoria Lucca is great.
