Really thought Michael Angelo’s pizza should have made the cut! Its way better than Basil and always impresses out of town guests.

Personally, I am a big fan of Michael Angelo’s pizza! The Sophia Loren is amazing. They cook eggplant extremely well, and it’s excellent on their pizza.

Brooklyn bagel is the best place to enjoy breakfast or lunch. Service is amazing and always with a smile. Peter and John great job!! Best of luck!

Are the options listed in order (ranked) based on the collection of readers’ votes originally used to developed the survey? I think they should be listed alphabetically so not to lead the responder. Great survey, bummed I did not see Alba’s listed.

My friends recommend this bakery to me and I had to visit when I came to New York. No regrets as I was more than pleased.

Omega Liquors has the best selection for Greek Wines that I have seen, Not to mention they make their customers feel like family. Favorite shop for wine by far!

I believe the King Souvlaki should win the Favorite Street Food award! These guys deserve it the most. Food-wise they have the best food from the rest even though the other ones are different cuisines and are also top in their food category. But most importantly the King Souvlaki has been in Astoria the longest. They deserve to have their hard-work recognized. Also Ricky McBrides is a great bar, voted for them! Il Bambinos is def my fave restaurant. They are just awesome at what they do!

There is no doubt about it, the best entertainment and stars are Anita M. Buffem and Gina Marie Rittale of The Haus of Mimosa. They are witty, talented, and leave you laughing and wanting more! These divalicious ladies are going places!!!

Love the list–can’t wait to go to all of the places on here..you may want to give people a choice of other or n/a..would be good if you don’t know about something and its not relevant for you.

The fact that il forno on ditmars was not on the list for best pizza and that il tuffino made it on there makes me question a lot of the choices on the list.

Just keep in mind, these finalists were chosen by WHA readers. We tabulated 100’s of responses to get us to these results.

No, they’re not, thus the controversy. Someone spread that rumor last year and it really took off. Of course, we really wish they were joining us!

why wasn’t trattoria l’incontro listed as one of the favorite restaurants? i would have gladly voted for it (and its wine bar) if they were listed.

Thanks for the question, Jeff. These finalists were actually chosen by our readers, and not by us. If you click the link in the post, you’ll see we crowd sourced the finalists after an extensive nominations period.
