Greetings from Boston!
A colleague is leaving us for a new job in DC, starting there on June 15. She's definitely a foodie -- has even written some high-profile restaurant reviews as a freelancer -- so for a going-away present we'd like to give her a $100 gift certificate to a DC restaurant.
This colleague is a Francophile, so a French restaurant would be a good bet. She's also 24, so "youthful and lively" would be preferable to "august and fusty." In case it helps, one of her favorite Boston restaurants can be found online at http://www.seldelaterre.com.
Thanks in advance for your advice on any restaurants that might be a good match!
