Gift certificate for restaurant near Brookfield, CT?

I am looking to get a gift certificate for my boyfriend's parents for Christmas. They live in Brookfield, CT. so, ideally, it would be somewhere not too far from there. I am thinking of spending around $100.00 or a little more and I want something good but not too fancy. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help!

  1. Franco's on Federal Road in Brookfield.
    Excelent food Good service, upscale but not to upscale.

    1. re: BLSCT

      That kind of place would be fine but not that particular place. Unfortunately, we have been to two rehearsal dinners there so I don't think that it would be all that "special!"

      Any other suggestions?

    2. it's been a while since i lived around there, but some ideas:
      Old Heidelberg is a great german place, in Bethel, but still close.
      The Cookhouse in New Milford, good BBQ steaks etc
      Your best bet might be to look for something in Danbury, its right next to Brookfield but will have a lot more options.

      1. LaFortuna's in Bethel, perhaps.
        Osaka in Brookfield if they like Japanese.
