Gift certificate in Naples area

My in-laws live in Naples and love to dine out. I want to get them a gift certificate to a nice restaurant for Christmas. They both like music, especially jazz, so any restaurants that may have music are a plus. In the past, I've gotten them gift certificates to Turtle Club which they loved because of the dining on the beach and Marie Michele's which has closed. Looking for some new ideas. Thanks!

      Mira Mare has gone into the space that was Marie Michelle's and is a better restaurant. Can't beat the location.

      Also, M Waterfront Grille, in the space that once was Maxwell's has entertainment often and excellent food. They have live jazz several nights a week.

      Baleen which is just up the beach from the Turtle Club has jazz often and a beach front setting but a little more elegant than the Turtle Club. Hope this helps.

        Thanks! I will choose one of the ones with live jazz. They will love it.

    2. I don't know if they have gift certificates but I would suggest Bites, the restaurant in the lobby of the Ritz. It's less formal and expensive than the other places in the hotel and of course the Ritz lobby is beautiful during the holidays. The food is excellent. Another possiblity is a certificate from Culinary Concepts, which would give them a choice of any of their fine restaurants including Chops, Yabba Grill, and Pazzo's.
