Looking for a nice restaurant in or around downtown Brooklyn

I have a friend moving across the country to downtown Brooklyn and I would love to buy her a gift certificate to a nice restaurant as a housewarming gift. I'd like to spend about $200 for her and her husband. Can anyone give me recommendations on restaurants in or around that neighborhood? Open to different types of cuisine, I just want to do something that's like, "Welcome to the Neighborhood." Thanks!

Fine dining and a romantic resaurant in DuPont Circle area

CityZen might fit your bill. It's located in the Mandarin Oriental and feels elegant. The food is, in my opinion, some of the best in the city, and I've been multiple times to most of the options you mentioned. They do a nice job with anniversaries, too.

Suggestions for restaurant with a private room near Stockton/Galloway

I am looking for a place to host a graduation party for my son in May. I need a restaurant with good food that has a private room that would fit about 20 - 30 people. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Recommendations for 2 days, 1 night in Detroit

I'm looking for recommendations for Detroit- I'm coming in tomorrow morning for business, and will have all day tomorrow open, so looking for recommendations for breakfast/brunch, lunch, and dinner. I'm heading to the baseball game tomorrow night, so dinner around there would be perfect, and I'm staying downtown, so lunch rec's there would be perfect.

Open to any type of food, but I'm going to be going with big meat-eaters. Since we'll be heading to the game after dinner, we'll be dressed casually, but I'd prefer a sit-down meal (rather than counter-service). I would love any help- I've never been to Detroit before!

Sunday Brunch for a large party in Montclair

I am getting married in September in Montclair, and we are planning on taking our wedding party and parents out to brunch the following day. I don't live in the area and would love suggestions for any restaurants that would be good for this purpose. It would be a big party, about 30, since we are including the partners of the wedding party and their families. There will be at least 2 toddlers present in that number, so somewhat kid-friendly would be ideal. Thank you!

Cheap or moderate suggestions in Vegas?

Thanks for asking for clarification. We're staying at New York, New York and we don't have a car. Price range...I would say cheap eats anything $12 and under for entree (like quick lunches, etc.) and moderate anything from $15-25 for an entree. I don't know if that's possible, this will be my first time in Vegas. Thank you.

Cheap or moderate suggestions in Vegas?

I'm going to Vegas with one of my friends next week, and we're looking for some good, cheap or moderate suggestions. I'm pretty adventurous and enjoy food a lot, she's less adventurous (but we should be good to go if she can get a decent steak or American food). Any suggestions?

Outdoor Brunch

Hi- am looking for brunch recommendations in DC (in particular, Capitol Hill/Downtown/Dupont/Logan Circle) that are inexpensive and have outdoor seating. Please help- I'm drawing a blank!

New Lunch Restaurant Suggestions?

I'm in the mood for something new. Does anyone have any tips on good, new restaurants in DC? I'm looking for casual, inexpensive to moderate, somewhere for lunch. Neighborhood doesn't matter as much, but somewhere between Columbia Heights, Dupont, downtown, Capitol Hill would be good.
