May 27th is Junior's Restaurant Day!

Juniors Restaurant

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.

Cheesecake was part of the world’s culinary canon long before the towering metropolis of New York City staked its claim — cakes of soft cheese go all the way back to ancient Greece. However, an American created the breakthrough that would become New York Cheesecake. In an attempt to replicate French Neufchatel cheese, a man named William Lawrence of Chester, New York, stumbled upon an even richer and creamier un-ripened result. That cream cheese became the base for New York's simple cheesecake (along with cream, eggs and sugar), which grew in popularity through the early 20th century. The most-venerable rendition came out of the Junior’s kitchen in downtown Brooklyn in 1950, resulting in a dense, smooth and almost pungent dessert that still attracts fans from throughout the region and around the world.
