Let’s observe shall we? Ah, here comes St Patrick’s Day. A day where we here in NYC observe all types of partying people from all walks of life taking a nip of the whiskey, eating some badly made corned beef and cabbage, and washing it all down with green tinted beer. That green beer which is usually the frat boy special known as Bud Light, Coors Light, or some other no name brand. Either one they use though it always has that distinct look when too much drinking and partying occurs and the streets turn into a green sea of fluids mixed with chunks of despair. Not to say that I have never been there too. I have been known in the past to proclaim myself a wee bit o’ the Irish and partake in plenty of imbibing with my fellow lads and lasses! I’m sure those around me did observe the Irish rainbow being spewed forth out of my gullet when my belly could no longer handle the abuse on occassion. Oh look, there are me Lucky Charms I had for breakfast!

The outcome? Junior’s Cheesecake is all that! And a bag of chips!

Since we had not eaten dinner yet I figured maybe we could grab a bite to eat there. The place was packed and there was a wait list but I was surprised at how big the dining area is and how much plentiful seating was available. We were seated after only about a ten minute wait. It is a fun and festive atmosphere here. Loud and boisterous with holiday decorations around the bar area. Our waiter, Stalin (yes, Stalin), came over with menus and a plate of pickles, beet salad, and cole slaw for the table. He offered a few suggestions and we went for it – the Corned Beef and Pastrami Combo on Twin Onion Rolls and potato salad, a slice of Strawberry Shortcake Cheesecake, and a slice of Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake. Now, I thought the prices here would be a wallet buster, but for NYC standards they were not bad. The sandwich platter was $15.95 and the cheesecake was $6.75 a slice. Sodas came with free refills. Plus, this was actually a lot of food and we were pretty content, fat, and happy when we left here. Continue reading Oh My God! That thing is huge! Junior’s Cheesecake NYC.
