Cheesecake in OC
I haven't seen a thread specifically about cheesecake, but I had some recently that I fell in love with. Was at Mascarpone's in Orange for dinner and heard about the homemade cheesecakes the owner's wife makes. Man, it was fantastic! It was so light, fluffy, and almost mousse-like and not at all dense like your normal cheesecakes. In fact, it's so fluffy and light, the middle of the cheesecake is practically falling over itself, it has a lot of height. Big portion, with great graham cracker crust.
Any other ethereal cheesecakes in OC?

The food was ok, nothing spectacular. I had a pasta with chicken, pancetta, peas, and their mascarpone sauce which was pretty rich. The guy had a filet with a cognac sauce, sauce was actually very good, but the side of pasta and veggies were merely and afterthought. Classic, old school family run italian joint - with dated decor included. I feel the cheesecake really is where they shine and makes them a little different.
