11/4/12 Sanfords  30-13 Broadway

11/5/12 Sunswick 35-02 35th St

“I’ve never been to a bar such as this that served up such a delicious avocado salad on mixed greens, or makes their wing sauce from scratch, or has quinoa on the menu—yea, you heard me, vegetarians. Oh, and they have a gazillion craft brews on tap…”—Julia D., Long Island City, NY

11/7/12 Statcare Astoria 37-15 23rd Ave

“I paid 150$ for Immigration medical form oppose to 380$ two blocks down on Steinway… I needed some extra vaccinations and booster and they recommended me to go to free vaccination clinic instead of paying them nearly 500$ for shots I could get for free! … I highly recommend them especially if you’re not sure where to go and/or you’re new to the area.”—Veronika R., Astoria, NY

TWO 5-star reviews, both 11/4/12  Astoria Veterinary Group 23-54 Steinway

“The staff is very caring and gentle, the care we received in the midst of a hurricane was excellent, the charge was shockingly low… I was very pleased, and no matter where I live in the city from now on, this will be where my dogs go, even if I have to rent a car to drive them there. I cannot recommend them highly enough.”—Jamie C., New York, NY

11/8/12 Astoria Laundry 23-17 31 St

“We are working in the Battery Park area pumping water from Sandy’s leftovers…  Astoria Laundry has been picking up our laundry before noon every day now for the past week or so and delivering it back to us later the same day. I don’t know about these other folks here and frankly don’t care, the only thing I do know is that these people here helped out and have been doing so for days now without any issues. THANKS GUYS, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.”—Damien M., Brooklyn, NY

11/4/12 The Studio 21-78 21st St

“This the best curly hair cut I have had in NYC and it only cost $16! … It is no longer right next to the train but it is totally worth the extra trouble to get in Maura’s chair. Shoot, just grab a drink at Hell Gate Social or a bite at Bistro 33 afterwards.”—Michele L, Astoria, NY

11/5/12 On the Nile 33-09 36th Ave

THREE 5-star reviews: 11/4, 11/5 & 11/7/12 Trattoria L’incontro 21-76 31st St

“This is hands down the best Italian restaurant in all of New York City. I am dead serious. Yes, it’s expensive but as the saying goes ‘you get what you paid for’ … This was a class A dining experience that I will never forget and I cant wait to go back!”—Jennifer A. Brooklyn, NY

11/9/12 Value Movers 31-10 31st Ave

11/4/12 Zorba’s Souvlaki Plui 29-05 23rd Ave

TWO 5-star reviews: 11/6 & 11/8/12 Astoria Bier and Cheese 34-14 Broadway

“Great selection of beers on tap and in cans/bottles and for a decent price… Pick your cheeses or get a meat and cheese plate for $20 with 5 different cheeses and 4 different cuts of meat. Great place to kick back and relax after work with friends or go and do work there.”—Anh P., New York, NY

Astoria Tango Club just celebrated their 1-year anniversary. Visit them on FB—or just head over to Broadway.

THREE 5-star reviews: 11/6 (2) & 11/9/12 Astoria Tango Club 41-01 Broadway

“From 6:00pm to 7:00pm they offer a class for beginners and then lots and lots of practice until late night. All for $10.00… So on Sundays, I am traveling from New Jersey all the way to Astoria. Wouldn’t go that far if it wasn’t worth it.”—Anna P., Hasbrouck Heights, NJ

11/9/12 Crescent & Vine 25-01 Ditmars

“Crescent & Vine is absolutely worth the walk off the beaten path of Astoria. This is a crème de la crème wine and craft beer bar, with a wine expert managing the wine menu and a beer expert (who brews his own beer and was a contributor to the recipe for the Imperial Coconut Milk Stout) managing the beer menu.”—Julia D., Long Island City, NY
