L20 or Blackbird for birthday dinner?
As I was not able to get a reservation at Tru this coming monday, I've narrowed my options down to L20 and Blackbird. I'm completely struck with indecision, and was hoping some advice/comments from chowhounders would help me out. I've been to Blackbird for lunch, but I've heard it can get really crowded at dinner. L20 seems like a more upscale, special occasion place.
Thanks for your help.
If you are celebrating, choose L2O. Since this is Plan B to Tru, i assume you are already thinking of spending the kind of money at these places. L2O is a very serene space, and the food is both very imaginative, and minimalist zen. Blackbird is great for a more fun and lively night. As you have been there, you know how small the space is, and at night, there is a frenetic, loud energy.
