Readers' Choice Poll: Where Would You Go to Eat If Someone Else Were Paying?

Your votes will determine who wins the title for "Readers' Choice."

The nominations are in! Well, several nominations all for one restaurant - Cugino's. But one place a choice doesn't make, so we added some of the other fine choices in town for our poll.

Now it's time for you to vote: Where is your favorite place to eat when someone else is buying?

If you don't see your favorite on this list, make sure you add it in the comments section below and be sure to look for next week's Readers' Choice post on Monday. Then you'll have until 5 p.m. on Wednesday to help get your top choice added to our weekly list of candidates.

Here are your options for this week's category:

Patch updates its "Directory" constantly, so if your business is not linked above, we will add it as soon as possible. If you are a business owner or manager and want to manage your free business listing, click on your business name and look for instructions on how to .

Voting in the poll below is open until 9 a.m. Friday, so make sure to cast your vote before it's too late!

Thanks for your participation - now get to voting and don't forget to tell us below why you love the place you choose!

The Patch editors comment's {The nominations are in! Well, several nominations all for one restaurant - Cugino's. But one place a choice doesn't make} Is this not called the "readers choice? As a result of one location getting all the votes you created another poll on an entire new page (hope your counting the original votes).On articles readers have the option to email the article or recommend it on FB. Sounds like some smart person did just that. My question to you is this: Did you not like the answer/replies from customers that voted for their pick? If so, perhaps this should be called the "editiors choice". In addition, you left out MANY other restaurants in Farmington, Piccolo, Andy's Kitchen, Green Tea, Wood N Tap, George's Pizza (Olive Bar is a bar-George's serves the food), PF Chang, etc... I'm finding these weekly "readers choice polls" to be tedious and annoying. If any of these establishments advertise with Patch and they weren't mentioned, and in the case of Cugino's, you asked ,more or less, for recount, I'd take my business elsewhere. Instead, why not use the opportunity to highlight and promote the individual local businesses on a weekly basis! With regards to restaurants, most of them in Farmington are small businesses not big chains. They need customers to sustain them and not a "poll" to divide them.

Hey Garrett! Thanks for your response. I'm sorry you feel that way. Our process is to accept nominations, then put the nominated businesses in a poll, then use the poll, comments and reviews of businesses in our directory listings to determine the winners. It's intended to be a thorough process. If only one business is nominated to enter the poll, then we supplement with other businesses in town to spotlight and promote a variety of local businesses. Also, we continue to ask if we missed anybody, and if people let us know, we'll add them to the poll. In our experience, the business that gets the most nominations is a strong favorite to win the poll, and we believe the process we've created (see official rules here) is fair. The goal, as always, is to promote local businesses and give readers a way to sing the praises of the shopkeepers and service providers they rely on to make life in Farmington a wonderful thing. I do appreciate your opinion though, and I trust we'll win you over!
