It was a clear winner from the start:
won this week's for best place to dine on someone else's dime.

One commenter wrote: “Stone Barns definitely. If it's , it's good enough for me!”
While another wondered, splurge or not, if you still went home hungry. “I guess I would pick Stone Barns. Since we've never wanted to pay for what it costs to eat there, it's a little hard to say for sure! My sister says that everyone she knows who has actually eaten there says that you are still hungry when you leave. For those who have gone there, is this true????”
Anyone want to speak to that? Isn't that often the case that the more you pay, the less you eat?
