Introduction

A destination in lower Manhattan since 1976, Eileen’s Special Cheesecake’s name says it all; This is the spot to find creamy, decadent, New York-style cheesecake that is indeed something special. Baked daily, shipped overnight, and spectacularly decadent, it’s the rendition that helped Bobby Flay learn how to beat the competition on his Food Network show Throwdown! and perpetually makes New York City’s best-of lists.

About The Food

Owner Eileen Avezzano’s secret for the best New York-style cream cheese cake is simple: a handful of exceptional ingredients, her mother’s family recipe, a hearty dash of love, and decades of experience. Her sumptuous selection of legendary New York-style cheesecakes—all of which are kosher and comply with the highest standards of Jewish dietary laws—ensures every type of dessert craving is satisfied, especially since cakes are baked daily and shipped overnight for ultimate freshness.

Owner
Meet The Owner

In 1975, Eileen Avezzano told the owner of her local New York deli that she far preferred her mother’s recipe. She proved it with a sample, and he instantly ordered 10 cakes for his shop. Overnight, Eileen was in the cheesecake business. She set up a wholesale shop in lower Manhattan in 1976. When locals requested cakes to purchase, she added a bakery case. Endless accolades later, including “Best Bites” in New York Magazine and “Number-one cheesecake” on radio station WOR, she began shipping cheesecakes all over the U.S. Today her cheesecakes are as coveted as ever.

Storage & Care

Refrigeration Instructions: Please unwrap all plastic and foam upon receipt and store in a refrigerator. Refrigerated cakes can be enjoyed for 7-10 days.


Freezing Instructions: After removing the gel ice pack from the box, do not unwrap the cake from its packaging if you choose to freeze it upon receipt- simply put the cake directly into your freezer. After enjoying, if you would like to re-freeze any leftovers, wrap the remaining cake in plastic. Cakes can be frozen for up to 3 months. The gel ice pack provided is reusable.


Slicing Instructions: Using a hot, wet knife- slice the cake and pull the knife from the bottom of the cake, do not lift. Clean the knife of any residue, making sure to repeat this step between every slice. OR Using unflavored dental floss, pull a piece longer than the cake and wrap around your fingertips. Pull it straight down on both sides of the cheese cake and gently pull out from the bottom, unwrapping one end from your fingertips. Run the floss between your fingertips to remove any crumb pieces and repeat.
