Wedding gift etiquette question: Should I give a gift certificate to a couple for one person's meal at a restaurant that I know the couple really wants to go to (Komi), or a gift certificate for a meal for two somewhere else, but a place that is not quite as good (Palena)? (DC-specific!) [more inside]

YetAnotherWeddingGiftQuestion: A month ago my husband and I attended a friend's wedding. We took our gifts to the reception (a cookbook and a set of pots and pans, wrapped in the same distinctive wrapping paper). Today we received a thank-you note - for the cookbook. Do I ask the bride and groom about the cookware? My motivation isn't "we got you this nice gift, and we want you to acknowledge it." When we got married, we received one set of china that we couldn't ever attribute to anyone, and it bugs me to this day that we couldn't properly thank the gift-giver.
So, do I ask? Or just let it go? These folks are friends, but not close ones.
