Where: Eileen’s Cheesecake (17 Cleveland Place)
Website: eileenscheesecake.com

My problem with cheesecake is that I find it plain, and strawberry cheesecake doesn't do much to change that. Elieen’s has the perfect solution. Having 35 years in the business, Elieen’s brags about having the “best cheesecake in New York.”

The fluffy banana cheesecake is presented as a round individual piece with two banana slices on top, covered with dribbles of chocolate.  A scrumptious oreo crust gives the cheesecake great texture. With a constant stream of satisfied visitors, Elieen’s proves to be on top of her game and has made a believer out of me. Call her the problem solver.
