Wedding Gift - restaurant gift certificate?

I'd like to give two friends that recently tied the knot a romantic dinner out on me and I'm looking for restaurant recommendations. The deets:
- Would like to spend $100 (this should cover at least 75% of the meal for 2 people)
- They live in Westwood, so would prefer to keep them in the Santa Monica-WeHo-Culver City triangle (could stretch to Hollywood, but Downtown, Valley or Southbay are too far)
- They're into organic/sustainable food and one is a former vegetarian (she eats meat now, but not a lot so I'd like to steer clear of steakhouses, etc.)
- Would like a romantic setting (I'm thinking outdoor patio, but this is not a must) but nothing too stuffy (they're a little bit hippie so I don't want them to feel out of place)
- Places I was thinking: Akasha, Campanile, Jiraffe (Not married to any of these places and definitely open to others, but would love to hear if you have strong feelings about any of them)

Thank you!
