Need suggestions for gift certificate in NW DC
My best friend lives in NW DC, close to Cleveland Park and AU. I'm trying to figure out a good place to get her a gift certificate for, as I do not live in the DC area. She is a real foodie, loving the very formal and the very informal, and all gradients in between.
I'm looking to spend about $25 dollars.
Can be a wine shop, a specialty food store, or a restaurant.
In Cleveland Park, I would suggest either Dino or Palena. Both nice restaurants. For $25 she can have a cocktail and a couple of appetizers. For something more casual, 2 Amys--wood fired pizza-- is good.

I have a similar question - I need a recommendation for a gift certificate for a wedding present. I'd like the gift certificate ($75) to cover most if not all of the meal. The couple lives in Alexandria but anywhere in DC would be great. They are also foodies - more into great food than the trendy scene - but any recommendations for hot food places would be great.
Shop route this the way to go.
Firehook for coffee/pastries
Cocoa for gelato/pastries/drinks/light fare
Yogiberry for frozen yogurt
California Tortilla--if she's a fan
Or you can get her a gift to the nail salon.
