Anniversary gift for foodie friends in Boston

We'd like to send a gift certificate to a foodie Boston couple who will celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary.

L'espalier? Clio? Others?

All ideas most welcome.

Thanks!

  1. How old are they? What kind of food/dining experience do they enjoy?

      I agree with the above poster - more information will lead to a better recommendation. Are you looking for one great night out (and in what price range), or alternatively, wine and cheese picnics that may extend over several weekends. Whatever you decide, it is a great idea.

    2. I'd add Hammersly's to the list.

        I went to Sorrelina's for my anniversary and it was beyond fabulous. The food is remarkable and the service matches. Not only did the general manager visit our table but so did the chef. I have eaten there twice and both times were perfection. The dining room is quite beautiful. They have a nice website too.

      2. Other high-end, expensive places to consider: Salts, O Ya.

        Alternatives: a gift certificate to a wine store (I like The Wine Bottega in the North End), or to a Gourmet Foods store (e.g. Savenor's, Formaggio Kitchen).

          Locke Ober, No.9 Park, maybe some Riedel wine glasses or a nice decanter?

            2nd try; I'd suggest Radius and get the chef's tasting menu!!
