9 Cheesecake Places in New York


Nothing says New York, like the rich and dense New York Cheesecake. Made typically with cream cheese, this iconic cheesecake relies upon heavy cream or sour cream, eggs and egg yolks. It is baked in a special 5- to 6-inch tall spring form pan in many restaurants. Some recipes use cottage cheese and lemon for distinct texture and flavour or add chocolate or strawberry to the basic recipe. Its unique style of baking gives a rich interior and light brown exterior. Enjoy a slice with a hot cocktail for a comforting end to any meal.

Eileen’s Special Cheesecake

Long-running bake shop specializing in mail-order & retail cheesecakes plus other sweet treats. Eileen's Special Cheesecake opened for business in December, 1975, and arrived in Lower Manhattan on December 4, 1976. Our location at 17 Cleveland Place, opposite Spring and Lafayette Streets, on the corner of Kenmare and Centre Streets, was not even listed on most maps. Cleveland Place has only about five buildings on the street. The Police Headquarters on Centre Street had vacated, and all the area businesses closed up.

Eileen hadn’t considered the retail aspects of the business until people started knocking on the door of the bakery wanting to buy cheesecake. With that encouragement, I purchased a bakery case and began to conduct retail business.

Martha’s Country Bakery

The Greeks invented cheesecake back in ancient times as an energy booster for participants in the first Olympic Games. If only it was still considered health food! Martha's Country Bakery is a Greek owned bakery in Queens that is making an exceptional cheesecake, though I can't imagine it resembles that original ancient recipe. The options here include Missippi Mud and Lemon Coconut, but I like to stick to the original. Topped with a large strawberry, the tangy cake has a hint of lemon and remains both creamy and decadent. 70-28 Austin St, Forest Hills, New York 11375
