Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner. Actually, we have two.
Congratulations to and , who have tied for first place in our '' competition.
Both restaurants will receive an official Patch certificate recognizing them as our readers' choice for a special night out.
Results were computed based on the poll, article comments and ratings and reviews in our business directory, Patch Places. While Palermo won the hands down, Boulevard Bistro fans chimed in passionately in the comments section to support their choice.
Here's what a few readers had to say about their faves:
Boulevard Bistro: "The food is out of this world whether it be for brunch or dinner, the owners are a visible and welcoming presence in the restaurant and that in and of itself is pretty special." --Hailey Brown
Palermo: "Great food at a great value." --Jason Berry
"Had to vote for Palermo just because they have such great calamari." --Marc Daniels
All the restaurants in the poll received positive comments from readers, and may have a chance to compete in other categories in the future. If there's one on the list you haven't visited, check it out!
