Cheesecake Corner in Brooklyn honors the Jewish founder of Junior’s restaurant

New York Jewish Week) — At the intersection of Flatbush Avenue Extension and Dekalb Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn sits Junior’s, an iconic New York restaurant and bakery famous for creating “The World’s Most Fabulous Cheesecake,” as they describe it.

For the last 24 years, the intersection has been known as Harry Rosen Way — Cheesecake Corner, named for the Jewish New Yorker who opened the Brooklyn institution in November 1950. Rosen died in 1996 at age 92; after handing the business to his sons, Junior’s is now run by grandsons Alan Rosen and Kevin Rosen.

“What a way to celebrate my grandfather’s legacy,” Alan Rosen told the New York Jewish Week on Thursday. “It was a great day. That guy would have loved this, he was a fancy guy. He would have loved to know he had a street corner named after him, especially in New York City.”

Junior's Rolls Out a Dessert Fit for The King: Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana is Winner of National Cheesecake Day Flavor Contest

******

Brooklyn, NY, July 27, 2023– Elvis Presley is the original rock 'n' roll legend, and Junior’s is the original cheesecake legend. So, it is more than appropriate that peanut butter chocolate and banana – inspired by Elvis’ favorite sandwich -- is now the newest limited edition Junior’s cheesecake flavor, the result of a national flavor contest held in the lead-up to National Cheesecake Day, this coming Sunday, July 30.

Out of more than 5,000 entries across the country, Thomas Zahorec, from Greenville, South Carolina, channeled his inner King when submitting the winning flavor.

"Elvis had his numerous number one hits, and we have ours," said Alan Rosen, owner of Junior's. “So, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate National Cheesecake Day than by creating this new flavor to honor the King, himself. Because just as you ‘can’t help falling in love’ with Elvis, I know you won’t be able to resist this peanut butter chocolate banana cheesecake. My deepest congratulations goes to Mr. Zahorec for inspiring our 25th flavor.”

Rosen said that in addition to a $2500 cash prize, Zahorec will win a cheesecake a month for a year, including one of the new flavor, of course. And Junior’s lovers around the country are also winners because the peanut butter chocolate banana cheesecake will be available for a limited time in Junior’s restaurants and by mail order. This limited edition flavor will be available in various sizes through Labor Day.
