Top 3 New York Style Cheesecake Offerings

September 5th, 2009 by jason Leave a reply »
  1. Timberlodge Steakhouse – Easily and consistently the best cheesecake I’ve ever had. Excellence from the whipped topping to the graham cracker crust. Ginormous portions also.
  2. Rainforest Cafe – Had this last night in San Francisco. It doesn’t come real close to Timberlodge cheesecake but it’s pretty good and will definitely do in a pinch.
  3. Fogo De Chao – Had this cheesecake Wednesday night after the Q3 Minneapolis VMUG. I don’t like the hard outer texture as much, however, once I dug in, I found it to be very delicious. It has a tasty graham cracker crust similar to Timberlodge cheesecake and the strawberries and whipped topping were great as well.
  4. Cheesecake Factory – One would think that by virtue of their name, they’d have the best. Not so. I keep going back expecting it will be better and it never is. It’s not a far fetched idea that one day I’ll find a cheesecake that will push Cheesecake Factory into 4th place. At that point they should really feel ashamed. It’s official, Cheesecake Factory has now fallen to 4th place.

    The Cheesecake Factory’s best dessert, as you know, is not cheescake, but in fact the Black-out Cake. ooooh boy is it good.

    The best Cheesecake is always from small local places, not large national chains. If you’re ever in Milwaukee, check out Simma’s Bakery for amazing cheesecake (or morning buns!). If it’s a Sunday, get there before 9:30 or else the church crowd cleans the place out…

    @lagota Of course Simma’s is the best. My favorite has raspberry topping 😀
