Magnolia Grill Gift Certificate

Dear Hounds,

A valued employee will be leaving and I would like very much to give him a gift certificate (for two) to the Magnolia Grill. Assuming a typical three course dinner with wine, could you advise me on the value of the certificate?

    1. My apologies for being so parochial--I was referring to the Magnolia Grill in Durham, NC

        No apology necessary; unfortunately though- that is one I can't help you with!

          I would say 125 to 150, but this depends upon the wine and how much. We spend about 125 for two including cocktail and one glass of wine for me, SO does not drink, and 3 courses.

      2. I'd venture to say $100 before wine, so maybe $125-150 with wine. Lucky employee!!

          Agreed with $100 before wine for two.

          1. Two of us received a $150 gift certificate last fall, and it was just the right amount to cover 3 courses and a glass of wine each, plus a 20-25 percent tip. Perhaps $200 if you think he'd like to buy a bottle of wine?
