The Cheesecake Factory Is Opening Its First Location in New York City

The Cheesecake Factory is opening its doors for the first time in the Queens Center Mall sometime this year

The Cheesecake Factory: Land of the voluminous chopped salad and over-the-top desserts, commonly found inside suburban malls, is finally coming to New York City.

The big cheesecake comes to The Big Apple later this year, according to The Queens Courier, and will be opening inside the Queens Center Mall in Elmhurst.

“We’re pleased that Cheesecake Factory is going to join us at Queens Center,” said John Scaturro, Senior Manager of Marketing at Queens Center Mall. “They’re going to be able to provide a nice new dining alternative for our community.”

The plans have not yet been finalized, as a representative from The Cheesecake Factory will be appearing before the local community board to discuss them. It’s estimated that the restaurant will have seats for 180 patrons inside and an additional 48 seats outside.  

The Cheesecake Factory said it anticipates a winter opening but no further information was given.

Is this the best news ever, or part of the unfortunate mall-ification of New York? It’s hard to think straight when our heads are filled with thoughts of creamy cheesecake.
