D’aiuto’s New York Cheesecake and Pastry
405 8th Avenue
New York, NY
New York is known for a lot of different foods such as hot dogs, bagels, pizza, and then there’s New York Cheesecake. I know there’s a lot of places to get cheesecake in New York but according to the Travel Channel, D’auito’s Cheesecake Pastry shop on 8th avenue is the best.
One of D’auito’s cheesecake shops is just a few blocks from where I am staying so I decided to try it out. The shop has dozens and dozens of cookies and an assortment of cheesecake pies. There’s chocolate, cherry, vanilla, plain, etc. I tried out the cherry cheesecake:
The quality and taste of Cheesecake, much like key lime pie , has a lot to do with the crust and the filling. D’auito’s makes a really heavy slice of cheese that is both creamy and sweet but not too rich. The graham cracker crust is not too flaky and has a nice crunch. It’s a great balance and I do recommend D’auito’s Cheesecake. I haven’t tried out enough cheesecakes out in New York to say who’s best but so far this is pretty good.
