Woodberry or B&O?

I'm visiting for a few days from the Bay Area and I was all set to book Woodberry after reading the recent posts, but when I talked to my MIL she told me that they have already tried it. Since I am visiting from out of town they would be happy to go there again, but I would love to find something new for them. She hasn't been to B&O would that be as good?
Or should I look at Salt or something else?

      Jon - have you been recently? I was there on Tuesday of last week and wasn't overly impressed. Everything was still good, but not to the level it had been in the past since they hired a new chef.

      That being said my wife and I went to Demi on Saturday and it was outstanding.

        I had lunch at B&O lastw eek and it was up to usual (high) standards.

    2. With all respect to Jon Parker, WK, hands down

        The problem with Woodberry is my MIL said it was "noisy" and my husband and I would like it, which sounded like they wouldn't be thrilled to go there again.

          WK is "noisy" as is Salt, although if I were paying, my pick between the two would probably be Salt (their Fall menu is great). That being said, B&O is a less hectic, more formal dining experience. I enjoyed B&O, but would probably rank it third, with Salt 1 and WK 2.

            Id rank Bluegrass #1:,B&O @2 and Woodberry & Salt # 3&4 in that order.

              Sadly, I haven't made it to Bluegrass yet although it's at the very top of my list. While we're at it, I'll slide everyone down a spot and put Peter's Inn at #1.
