Wedding present suggestions?

I've just learned that a friend who I've fallen out of touch with just married and I'd like to buy her/them a present. I was thinking of something like an OpenTable gift certificate but apparently that doesn't exist. I don't know them well enough to choose a restaurant they'd like and get a gift certificate there. I also don't know if they registered anywhere. I'm not in NY so I'd have to do this online or by mail. Any ideas?

  1. Union Square Hospitality Group is a popular restaurant group in the city. Their restaurants include a wide variety from a BBQ restaurant (Blue Smoke) to casual burger joints (Shake Shack) to upscale fine dining (The Modern at the Museum of Modern Art, Eleven Madison Park) to an Italian trattoria (Maialino).

    They'll have their choice of multiple restaurants (USHG gift cards are good at all their restaurants), some of which are the best in the city at what they do.

    Eleven Madison Park
    11 Madison Ave., New York, NY 10010
