If Junior's served only main dishes it would still be famous, but who are we kidding? Junior's does NOT serve only main dishes. As anyone who knows the restaurant will tell you, Junior's is synonymous with "cheesecake." There are many who brag that Junior's makes the best cheesecake in the world. I'm no expert, but I will say it's pretty darn good! If you like chocolate and you're really up for a challenge, try the "devil's food cheesecake," a six-inch-high combination of cheesecake and devil's food cake with fudge frosting. It's so rich you'll feel sick for two days afterward, but it's sooooo worth it.
There's a take-out bakery for those who don't manage to save room for dessert, and they ship cheesecakes anywhere in the country. (My boyfriend once helped me through a long year in Oklahoma with a regular supply of Junior's cheesecakes.) There's even a Junior's cookbook, for anyone who dares to create the magic at home.
Several subway stops converge in the general area -- two possibilities are the N/R to DeKalb or the A/C/F to Jay Street with a walk down Fulton Mall to Flatbush Ave. There's also a second Junior's outpost in the Grand Central Station dining concourse. It's a pale shadow of the original, but works in a pinch (and they DO have cheesecake).
