Since it opened in 2007, the Times Square location of Junior’s Restaurant has been a success, raking in up to $24 million in business a year, according to Alan Rosen, the Brooklyn-based company’s third-generation owner.

Now, Junior’s is hoping history repeats itself with a second location in the theater district.

A new Junior’s, seating up to 275 patrons, officially opens Wednesday at 49th Street and Broadway—a short walk from the decade-old Junior’s, which is located near 45th Street and Broadway, and also holds up to 275 people. The established Manhattan location ranks as the 15th highest-grossing independent restaurant in the country, according to Restaurant Business, a trade publication.

May 27th is Junior's Restaurant Day!


Junior's Restaurant founder, Harry Rosen, at the reopening of Junior's Restaurant on May 27th 1982, with Governor Mario Cuomo, celebrating Junior's Restaurant Day.

This isn’t a national food holiday, but it is something for New Yorkers to celebrate! May 27th is Junior’s Restaurant Day, a day celebrating that famous cheesecake heaven in downtown Brooklyn. Although it feels like the restaurant has been around since forever, it’s only been in operation in Brooklyn since 1950, when Harry Rosen opened the restaurant and named it after his two sons. Since then it’s been a staple of Brooklyn cuisine, a place that exemplifies the food and the spirit of Brooklyn: simple, inexpensive dining, no frills or fanciness, but some damn good flavors and a hearty dessert while you’re at it. As some like to call it, "The World's Most Fabulous Cheesecake." In 1982, Governor Mario Cuomo declared May 27 as Junior’s Restaurant Day.


The day was marked to celebrate the reopening of Junior's Restaurant after the historic fire destroyed the top floor of the restaurant and the 'Burgundy Room' in August of 1981.  During the fire, onlookers on Flatbush Avenue gathered and chanted "Save the Cheesecake! Save the Cheesecake!"
