Lilette or La Boca?

Trying to decide between Lilette of La Boca for our friday night dinner. The rest of our weekend lineup includes Stella's and Le Foret. Which one would you choose?

    We had dinner at Lilette two weeks ago. I was not impressed with the menu. They were very busy but service was fine I just did not like the menu. I would vote for La Boca. You can't go wrong with Stella or Le Foret. Good luck.

      Depends. Do you want to eat a steak?

        Couldn't be any more different. If you want a variety of steak offerings, 3 pasta dishes, some sausage apps, a few types of chimichurri sauces for the meat, and the part of town (Warehouse District), you'll love La Boca. Lilette is a bistro with a varied menu, bit overpriced, but consistently good. Lilette has an interesting wine list, La Boca's is 100 percent from Argentina, but both have temperature-controlled bottles, which is always a nice touch.

          I can always eat a steak, just want to eat at which ever place is better. Thank you for all the replies so far.

            If it's steak you're after, La Boca's your choice, no doubt. I went to Lilette the other night and got the kobe n.y. strip special. It was around 50 bucks or so, and all I could think of was how much better steaks are at La Boca. On the other hand, La Boca doesn't have marrow toast.

              Oh so right about that marrow toast, N.O. Food! That may be the single most decadent bite of food in town.

                I agree. I've toyed wih ordering several and calling it a meal. I had the ribeye with marrow butter at Emeril's last week. Just when I thought a ribeye couldn't get any more decadent. Next time I'm requesting an extra pat (of the butter).
