EMP private party - black bass or beef?

I am having a private party at EMP soon and cannot decide on the main entree.
We will be having a 3 course meal starting with scallops. Beef seems like a safe choice, but I am also considering the black bass. The menu descriptions are so limited I can't seem to decide.

Black bass
Poached with celery and black


Chestnus, Celery Root and Watercress

Has anyone had either dish? I also am not loving the choices for dessert. Anyone tried the Chocoate - Caramel tart with chocolate sorbet? Thanks for your feedback!

  1. The chocolate with salted caramel is delightful, I had it about a week ago. Excellent and they used Mast Brothers dark chocolate for me. I believe you can ask for a milk chocolate version as well.

      Thanks Kathryn for helping me decide on the dessert course!

    2. We had a party there a few months ago, for about 50 people. We offered a choice of the bass or beef, and the beef was the clear winner. The sauce is perfection, and the beef was brilliant. I also love the chocolate tart. It's a solid choice.

            For our first course, we had the slow-cooked egg with wild mushrooms, which was delicious.
