I always pick the weathervane when I want a good, slow pace Lunch. The menu changes seasonally so there's always a taste treat to be had. They have been very busy of late, so I would use reservations for lunch and supper.

I just spoke with Weathervane, and got my answers directly. They sell gift certificates, on their Chapel Hill Website, and it is toward the bottom of their Web Page. No additional answer needed, now.
