NOLA romantic dinner for 2 as wedding gift?

I know I'm opening myself up for 861 opinions all opposing each other, but that's what this place if for, right? Okay, friends are getting married next week and then heading for NOLA, not for a honeymoon, but because she's going to be working so he's going along. I'd like to give them a gift certificate for dinner at a New Orleans restuarant during their stay. They are young, hip, know good food and wine, both excellent cooks, appreciate innovative preparations but lean toward classic Italian when left to their own devices (that's not to say I'm necessarily thinking of an Italian Restaurant). The place I'm looking for must be romantic and cozy (are courtyards/outdoor seating a good idea in October?), be in or near the French Quarter and they MUST take reservations. Neither have been to New Orleans before but we all enjoy LOTS of great food here in Seattle. Anyone? Anyone?
