If you like home cooking, Margaux's is fine. If you're more of a foodie like me, go to Midtown Grille.
Today, my birthday, my husband asked me to choose a restaurant. We had been to Midtown a few times before and wanted to try something different.
At Margaux's, I had the escargot appetizer (drowning in butter), and the peppered duckling ($25; relies too much on sweetness for flavor) with cold (yes!) sweet potato mash. My husband had the bland duck terrine appetizer and forgettable Grilled NY strip ($29). Even the wine offerings by the glass are disappointing. Trader Joe's has better wines for $5/bottle.
For the same money, ambience, service and food are all better at Midtown. Just saying...
