Would love to get the 'hounds help on this one! My Mom's 60th birthday is coming up in a few days and I think I'll get her a gift certificate for dinner for 2 at a good restaurant in Charlotte. Something nice with very good food is what I'm looking for. But not too nice, because she'll never get my Dad to dress up without complaints.
My parents eat out fairly frequently (at places like Greek Isles, Pewter Rose, and South End Brewery), but I'd like to give her a chance to branch out and try something new/nice for a special occassion. I'm thinking $100 for dinner for two (my dad will drink a few beers and my Mom might have a glass or two of wine). They're open to just about any type of food.
Any suggestions are much appreciated!
