Manhattan Cheesecake

Alrighty, so I'm heading down to Manhattan for 4 days, and was wondering where the best cheesecake is. Is the Carnegie Deli's cheesecake any good, or would any of you recommend something better?

    Well, the general consensus is Juniors and I tend to agree. If you don't want to trek out to Brooklyn to the original they have a sattelite counter in Grand Central Station and I belive the cakes there are equally as good.

    The Roxy Deli in Times Square has the best cheesecake in all of New York! They have tons of flavors, each time I go I have to try something new. A slice of cheesecake is about $9 but it can easily feed 2 or 3. I tried to find their website but I guess they don't have one. I did find this page though. At the top of the page you can click on their menu.

    Here is part of their huge menu:

    I have never eaten at the Carnegie Deli or Juniors, but I have had junior's cheesecake and its really good. My uncle goes to Junior's for egg creams and brings us back some cheesecake. We used to go to Lindy's, in Times Square by MTV, for cheesecake but after trying the Roxy's we haven't been back. Lindy's cheesecake is still good but they don't have as many flavors.

    As a Manhattanite, I make a distinction between "regular" cheesecake, cream cheese cake and Italian cheesecake. Sometimes I prefer the Italian version, which is more grainy and "rough" but hen it has more texture than the "smooth" kind. You can get it in good Italian bekeries (try Bleecker St.or Ferrara's on Grand St. in Little Italy). I'm not a fan of the "flavored" kinds. I'd rather just put some fresh fruit on top.
