The first one is really saying something because I’m about to share with you the best cheesecake in New York.  For crying out loud, cheesecake is named after the state.  Are you ready for this jelly?  I give you a strawberry jam-topped mini cheesecake from Eileen’s.  Food & Wine Magazine named them the best Cheesecake in all of America. They are made fresh daily and have the highest ingredients.  How do I know that?  They charge $108.00 for a cheesecake.  I’m not sure if solid gold is one of their ingredients but I know it tastes like it.
