Best of the Boro voting is open

Over 400 restaurants and bars have been nominated in The Queens Courier’s 2nd annual Best of the Boro Competition. Now it’s time for you to whittle down the large field of contenders to the very best. Voting will last until August 31. You vote, they win.

The cultural diversity in Queens is matched by the array of cuisine served up by the borough’s restaurants. Looking for a great Thai, Greek, Italian, American, Indian, Japanese, Mexican or Latin American restaurant? Visit the Best of the Boro voting page and see who Queens residents consider the best. Then try a couple in the category and decide who deserves your vote as the very best.

There are dozens of subcategories of food and drink for residents to vote in: ranging from best happy hour and beer selection to best coffee and dessert; from best calamari and bakery to best Irish bar and catering hall. Each subcategory will have a first place and runner-up winner crowned as Best of the Boro.

Keep your eye out for eateries with a Best of the Boro poster in the window indicating they’ve been nominated. Restaurants will also have postcards urging customers to vote for them.

Click here to vote. There you can vote for your favorite in each category as often as you would like. All data will be tabulated by a third party company.
