When you think of the most iconic New York City foods, cheesecake is near the top of that list -- And when you think of NY Cheesecake, Junior's is the legend that all others are measured against.

Everyone knows America’s best cheesecakes hail from New York. And the most popular NYC institution known for doing it right? That’s gotta be Junior’s. Famous since the day they opened in 1950, Junior’s Restaurant is a Brooklyn landmark. Harry Rosen, Junior’s founder, scraped together every dime he had to build his restaurant, naming it after his two sons. With its bright orange awnings and booths, Junior’s continues to bake cheesecakes from the same spot over 65 years later using the same recipe Harry perfected. Beloved by locals for years, Junior’s cheesecakes became renowned worldwide after NY Magazine conducted a blind taste test and rated Junior’s as the best. Since then, Junior’s has been visited by everyone from former presidents to James Beard award-winning chefs.

We're not the only ones who love them!

Junior's has been featured too many times to count on Food Network and in The New York Times and NY Magazine. The Wall Street Journal rated it “Best Overall.”
