Dinner for two -- $100 or less. Thoughts?

Here's a challenge for the Austin Chowhounds: We don't live in TX, but we would like to give two special friends in Austin a gift card for dinner at a local restaurant (any cuisine goes), and we'd like the gift card to cover essentially the whole check. But here's the catch -- you have a $100 limit for the gift card (anything higher would be deemed too much by the recipients, and would defeat the purpose of the gift). I've found a number of restaurants on the board that look fabulous, but they all seem very likely to blow a hole in that budget, and we don't want our friends dipping into their own wallets at this meal.
I'd vote for Foreign & Domestic, in terms of sheer mileage for your dollar. It feels fancy, creative, and cool. It doesn't cost a fortune. Our bills are usually under $100 when I go with my wife. But we share a lot of apps and split an entree usually. Might want to check my math with the menu they have online.

I'm a big fan of Fabi and Rosi. The food is really good, a lot of it is local, and it doesn't cost a lot. I think you could easily get two people a great meal, wine included, for under $100.
