We were given a $100 gift certificate to Rugosa as a marriage gift. Any suggestions as to how my cousin can get her money back? Thank you.

Sad news - we went there several times last summer & enjoyed every meal.........just impossible to make it here with a year round restaurant unless one has deep pockets.
