I am looking to find the best cheesecake in Manhattan, can someone tell me where I will find this? I am a huge peanut butter fan so this is my preferred option! :)

  1. Junior's! overpriced? Maybe...but great cheesecake!

    1. They only serve one kind of cheesecake with some toffee bits thrown in, but I love the cheesecake at Artisanal. I haven't tried Junior's. If you love peanut butter and cheesecake, you may also want to try the peanut butter chocolate pie at Billy's Bakery. The filling is a loose, whipped, mousse-y concoction that tastes like a blend of pb and something like cream cheese (it's got a little bit of a tang).

      1. re: Lucia

        I really love Artisanal's cheesecake as well.

      2. I love Two Little Red Hens' cheesecake. On a side note, I am enamored with their Brooklyn Blackout Cupcake (intense chocolatey goodness!).


        1. I love Junior's and many people forget they have a location in Grand Central Terminal (downstairs where the trains are).
