Chowhounder from Oregon is purchasing a gift certificate for a dinner in a Manhattan restaurant for a New York friend who is getting married in a couple of weeks.
Budget is up to $75 per person; not sure of his fiancé taste so would like to stay mainstream-safe (American, Italian, etc.) Romantic setting, but does not have to be fancy; good-feeling place with good food and good value for the money.
Your suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks!
