Holiday Present Help-- Where would you buy a gift certificate for a "nice" meal or two in Pittsburgh?

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law live in Pittsburgh. They are both in school. They are foodies and enjoy eating out. They are former NYCers who moved to Pittsburgh a couple of years ago. They are pretty adventurous when it comes to food. We thought we'd give them a gift certificate or two for a nice meal (my thought is to somewhere that they could not afford to eat on their own) as a holiday present. I'd love any and all suggestions. Thank you in advance!

    I can recommend it.

      I agree with burghgal. Nine on Nine is a great choice, but I would lean toward a new restaurant in Garfield called Salt of the Earth. I've heard great things about this place, and I think the chef/owner (Kevin Sousa) is the best in the city.

        I agree with Salt of the Earth or Spoon - wasn't sure if they were doing gift certificates.

        Salt of the Earth. I'd be surprised if they didn't have a provision for gift certificate. Give them a call.

          Another vote for Salt of the Earth. This is a new restaurant that is getting a lot of buzz, so if they're foodies, I'm sure they'd love to have the chance to go check it out.
