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

or

Beef
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!

Please help me pick a restaurant for a 40th birthday celebration - private room

Thanks for all your feedback. I booked the private room at EMP for January. I hope it is worth it!

Looks like the BLTs are out. Blue Hills are out too. I was not impressed with the NYC location and the BH@SB is probably too far to travel in winter. I welcome more opinions about GT and EMP.

Thanks for the input! I was expecting a lot of praise for EMP considering how many great reviews they have on CH.

I am planning a 40th birthday celebration for my husband in Jan 2012. It will be a sit-down dinner for 15 people. So far I have contacted EMP, BLT Fish, BLT Steak, Blue Hill (NYC and Stone Barns) and Gramercy Tavern. Does anyone have any first hand experience with dinner in these private dining rooms? We are big foodies and I used to cook professionally - the food is very important. For the money I don't want to pick a set menu and have what would feel like good wedding food. I want to be wowed. Can anyone help me decide?
