Congratulations to everyone who received Yelp’s highest honor this week! SugarFreakDog Liberty, and Dynamite Balloons are repeat winners from last week … Queens Comfort wins this week’s “Best/shortest/funniest” review … and Athena from Studio 31 wins over yet another fan with her killer “good listener/big talent” one-two combo.

9/22/12 Socrates Sculpture Park 32-05 Vernon Blvd
“Indivisible” by EAF12 artist Melissa A. Calderón, via their Facebook page

9/23 Dog Liberty 34-25 37th St

9/22/12 Matsu Sushi 34-11 30th Ave

“The warmness of the chefs (Leo and Jeff) and the staff won me over. We became friends right away and all dishes were custom made to our taste. Nothing out of the menu. So much that I had to take pictures of every dish and soon my phone became our own special menu.—FR., Long Island City, NY

9/23/12 Ukus 42-08 30th Ave

9/23/12 Stamatis Restaurant 3114 Broadway

9/23/12 Wave Thai 21-37 31st St

“Cute clean and really good food. Great quality but inexpensive. The servers are super helpful and friendly.”—sally l., Astoria, NY

925/12 Avenue Café 35-27 30th Ave

9/26 Egyptian Coffee Shop 25-09 Steinway St

“Love this place. I get to practice my Arabic on the waiters and their turkish coffee is so good! … 
Paying is always an adventure as they’ve brought the Egyptian system of billing to Astoria with them—they just tell you how much you owe, no check, no list of items that you have ordered. If it weren’t so cheap already, I’d probably haggle a discount…

 This place rocks.”—Ro C., Woodside, NY

9/24/12 Dynamite Balloons (347) 376-6452

9/28/12 Chicken Souvlaki Street Cart NW Corner of Broadway and 32nd St

“Excellent choice for a snack (or meal) if you’re in the area. King of Falafel down the block gets all the love but there’s no question that this cart serves superior chicken.”—Matthew K., New York, NY

9/27/12 Astoria Urgent Medical Care 32-74 Steinway St

9/26/12 Body Language Tattoo 32-02 34th Ave, Store 4

9/26/12 Olympic Luxury Car Service 24-04 24th St

“The bottom line with this place is that it’s conveniently located by the Broadway stop on the NQ line, has reasonable prices, a friendly staff, and tasty treats that I like to pick up when I’m in a rush.“—Richard W., Astoria, NY

9/27/12 Studio 31 32-07 31st Ave

Athena was very professional and spent a LOT of time with me. She listened to my requests and offered her own, very helpful opinions. The results were gorgeous!! When I left, I knew I would be coming back. I waited until now to write a review because I wanted to see how it all grew in. Again, I have no complaints.”—Michelle C., Manhattan, NY

THREE 5-star reviews: 9/26, 9/27 and 9/28/12 SugarFreak 36-18 30th Ave

9/26/12 Value Movers 31-10 31st Ave

“My boss asked me to look for a moving company the last minute. The gentleman who answered the phone was very accommodating and very helpful. I had special requests and they were nice enough to accommodate us. We had to move from downtown to uptown and I just have to thank them for being so efficient. I highly recommend Value Movers and I am giving them five stars for excellent service!”—Stephane M., SoHo, Manhattan, NY
