River Cafe gift certificate - what can we get?

Else | Nov 3, 2004 06:01 PM

My boyfriend's mother has given us a $125 gift certificate at the River Cafe. She suggested we use it for brunch (that amount might actually cover a brunch for two), but we're not big brunch eaters and we may never be able to afford these hallowed halls again, so we're wondering if we should shell out a little more for dinner instead. At $78 per person prix fixe, we figure we can bring our own champagne (waiting in the fridge for a special occassion), and get out of there for about $80 (including corkage and tip). Does this sound about right? And if anyone has an argument for brunch vs. dinner, lay it down! I've looked at the menus for both meals online, but would love specific recommendations if you have any. I eat fish but not meat, so don't say the steak!
