To be honest, I’ve felt restaurant-deprived since I left Astoria for Sunnyside. This might hip me to new places that will make me miss 11106 a little less.

The more Sunnyside gets better the better it gets for Astoria. It takes a bit of the “demand” and price increase rent,food, over crowded trains off of us and distributes it across different neighborhoods. So kudos to Sunnyside!

I’d love to win because I feel like I’ve only scratched the surface of what Sunnyside has to offer, and it would be great to try all of these places at one time.

One of the best things about living in Queens is the food! I love cooking and baking and experimenting with food. An event like this would be great to get some new cooking ideas!

I would love to win, I have been a Sunnyside resident for years but use your guides all the time when I head out to astoria to attend cool events or restaurants. I am a food at heart and used to manage a food blog called foodie on a budget. I would thoroughly enjoy the VIP experience at taste of Sunnyside and sample the amazing food Sunnyside has to offer as well as trying new places I haven’t tried before in Sunnyside. I think this event is a great way of bringing the communitu together.
