visiting shortly - looking for classic New York Cheesecake
I'm sure the debate will rage over what that might be, but I'm looking for some good examples of a plain baked cheesecake. Looking to find it in a restaurant or cafe or somewhere where I can eat it on the spot, rather than having to take it back to my hotel room from a bakery, supermarket, shop etc.
Are there any classic accompaniments too?
Anywhere in Manhattan would be fine to seek it out
Thanks, Pete, UK
I am going to take a lot of @#@#$$@# for this but my favorite cheese cake is at the Carnegie Deli. That's right, I said it. The strawberry is the traditional favorite but I like the blueberry better.
This is a very typical NY style cheesecake btw.
I like the cheesecake at Katz's Deli. It's definitely in the classic NY style. And there's a nice balance of baked exterior and creamy interior. Way better than Junior's.
