    Some may think it's blasphemy, but I love, love, love the Chocolate Tuxedo cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory. It's chocolate cake on the bottom, several layers of cheesecake and mousse, topped with whipped cream. Divine!

    Not sure about where the best 'plain' cheesecake is...

      The best cheesecake for me, exists as a memory. No chef has ever been able to replicate it.

        Try Trader Joe's New York "baked" cheesecake. It's the one in the small box with blue writing on it. Trader Joe carries a couple of different cheesecakes, so don't get the wrong one.
