need suggestions on where to puchase a gift card for gloucester residents

My godchild was recently engaged; she and her intended are from Gloucester, Mass. I live in the Philadelphia area and would like to send them a congratulatory gift card to a very good restaurant. They are young, educated and well-traveled. Any suggestions? I am hoping to call a restaurant, pay over the phone, and have them send me the card so that I can the pass it on.

      Franklin Cafe on Main St. is excellent also My Place in Rockport.

          If I lived in Gloucester, I might want get out of town to go out to eat, and it looks like a new smoker just arrived at 5 Corners Kitchen in Marblehead, so I would expect some promising bbq coming soon.

            Thanks to all the posters so far- one clarification- i don't think i HAVE to purchase something from Gloucester. Just as long as it is special.

              Are they willing to travel in to Boston? If so, that opens up a much wider range of possibilities.

              I recommend My Place by the Sea in Rockport on Bearskin Neck. The owners will work with you to make an evening special.

                Thanks for all the ideas. To srgoodman: I think they would be willing to travel, but I don't know how long of a trip that is? It looks like My Place by the Sea is Lovely (makes me jealous we don't have something like that here!). Maybe I will try that.
