Cheesecake and Spam(alot)

On Sunday we met everyone at Junior's Cheesecake in Times Square for a pre-show dinner. The original is in Brooklyn, not far from where Paul works. He told me about the large portions, but he hadn't tried the signature dessert.

After we ordered, our waitress brought us a bowl of sauerkraut topped with pickles and a small bowl of pickled beets. No one else wanted the beets, and I had never tried any before. Not as good as the cheesecake, of course, but still pretty tasty.

I convinced Paul to split an entree with me so I would have more room for dessert. In fact, that's what each couple at our table did. Then came the main attraction. Paul and I quickly decided on the Devil's Food Cheesecake -- a layer of cheesecake about two inches thick surrounded by several layers of cake and fudgy frosting. I wish I would have taken a photo of it. We had enough left for a third person.

Junior's food is about average, but the cheesecake will definitely warrant a second trip.

We had tickets for the 7 p.m. show of Spamalot, and we could see the theater from our window seats at Junior's. I had never ever seen more than a couple of minutes of anything Monty Python-related, but I still thought the show was really funny.

Of course, we all took photos outside after the show.

By the time the show was over, it was dark and Times Square was bright. After a few more photos, we picked up Sam and Don's luggage from Jannette and Curtis' apartment and made our way to Bay Ridge. More about our day in Brooklyn later!


  1. It sounds amazing -- especially the cheesecake, of course, but I love sauerkraut and pickles, too. It actually sounds like a pregnant woman's (which I am NOT) dream, LOL.

    When I come to visit, I want to go there!

  2. Was it sauerkraut? I thought it was cole slaw... either way it was tasty but nothing like the tasty cheesecake. I'm glad we got the chocolate mousse as it was way less filling than having a whole piece of cake plus cheesecake!

    And there's no photos of you and Paul playing a knight!

  3. You know, I think it was cole slaw. In either case, it was good but absolutely nothing compared to the cheesecake!

    And I did realize I forgot to download the knight pictures, but I was too lazy to grab my camera again!
