Junior's was founded when the Dodgers were in Brooklyn and Harry S. Truman was President. It was also the year I was born and I have a definite soft spot for one of the great homes of New York Style Cheesecake. The original Junior's is on Flatbush Avenue in downtown Brooklyn, but I am more apt to stop in for coffee and a black and white cookie at the Grand Central Station location. It's also a top choice when I am with visitors in the Times Square area.
Plain and less plain, and all delicious.
I am a fan of the fruit topped cheesecake, but I have a hard time choosing between cherry and pineapple. Luckily I see the cheesecake in the back of the case with cherry, blueberry and pineapple topping.
My beloved black and white cookies, one of the world's truly great desserts.
I took the pictures here and at Financier on the same day and somehow managed not to order anything. It was a great temptation, but I am determined to do this series of posts without gaining five extra pounds. I've got to be able to wear the same clothes in May as I did in March when I started and it's a challenge. I'm doing okay so far, but there are nineteen more days to go.
Today is beautiful. It felt like the first day of summer in the middle of April and I loved it. I made an excursion to Greenwich Village for the photos for "L," and it was lovely.
As always, thanks for stopping by and visiting. Don't be shy and please leave a comment and let me know what is your favorite cookie.
Enjoy the weekend!
