New York City may have it all, but it ain’t got The Cheesecake Factory.
Believe me — I was just as shocked as you.
I have to go all the way out to Long Island or venture into New Jersey to enjoy the mega menu and monster portions of this ginormous chain restaurant.
When I lived in Boston, it wasn’t a matter of whether or not they had a CCF — it was which one you wanted to go to! Beantown residents have the pleasure of not one, but two locations. All that, and the Red Sox, too.
But the city that never sleeps? We have to take the LIRR — that’s the Long Island Railroad for you out-of-towners — to put our heads down into the gilded CCF trough and still come home with with enough food for four more meals.
It brings a tear to the eye.
Now, The Cheesecake Factory has created a completely new category of food — the Glamburger — a burger too special to call ‘ham.’ Inspired by six different cities — cities which have a CCF, no doubt — these delicious-looking burgers appear to be the size of your head.
And CCF is even letting you create the next Glamburger in the “Great Glamburger Challenge.”
I don’t even like hamburgers that much, and I entered…because the winner gets a Glamorous Getaway.
Bet there’s a CCF there, too.
