Junior's Restaurant Review

: Cars double-park outside the busy and gaudy Junior's, with its blinking lights and hustling waitstaff. Inside you’ll find typical deli fare and, oddly, soul food at this Brooklyn institution, like sandwiches, ribs and such, but they all take a back seat to Junior's main attraction: cheesecake. Junior's sells a wide variety of traditional creamy New York-style cheesecake like raspberry swirl, red velvet and chocolate mousse as well as strudels, babka and turnovers. It's a blast from the sweet past, and one of New York's best. Stop in for a meal --- or just a whole cheesecake to go.
