Junior's Restaurant: Ah, the cheesecake!

Since Jill asked...

There has been a diner on the corner of DeKalb and Flatbush in Brooklyn since 1929. In 1950, owner, Harry Rosen, founded his new restaurant and named it for his sons, Walter and Marvin. Junior's was born. Although a little bit of everything was on the menu, it was the cheesecake that grabbed everyone's gustatory attention. The recipe had been in the Rosen Family for three generations and it well deserves it's nickname, "The World's Most Fabulous Cheesecake."

A fire nearly destroyed Junior's in 1981, and distraught Brooklynites gathered at the catastrophe screaming, "Save the cheesecake! Save the cheesecake!" They couldn't, sadly. But they saved the recipe, and today, Junior's Cheesecake can still be bought at the original location, in Grand Central Terminal, off Times Square, and in the lobby of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

And, you can buy it right here, on-line (their new Carrot Cheesecake is Jeff's favorite):
