The 9 Best Cheesecake Places in New York City That Offer Delivery and Takeout
Calling all sweet tooths.
Apart from its massive pizza slices and flavorful bagels, New York City is also home to some of the best cheesecakes in the world. Previously known as “plakous” (flat mass) in ancient Greece, the cheesecake was originally made of fresh cheese pounded smooth with flour and honey, then cooked on an earthenware griddle.
Eventually, New Yorkers fell in love with the dessert in the early 1900s when Arnold Reuben, a German-Jewish immigrant who owned a succession of Manhattan restaurants, introduced his cream cheese-based “New York cheesecake.” Ever since then, a number of bakers have been creating their own versions of the delicacy and incorporating it with different versions of cheeses and flavors.
