Adding cheese to anything makes it better, whether it's a cake or a state above Illinois. Harness the dairy delicacy into dessert form with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cheesecakes and lunch fare at Anthony’s Cheesecake in Bloomfield.
At Anthony's Cheesecake, owner Anthony Lauro crafts each and every cheesecake made-to-order from fresh ingredients, using treasured family recipes passed down to him by his mother and grandmother. The classically delectable New York–style cheesecake ($18 for 8”; $24 for 10”) delights naturally urbane palates with a buttery graham-cracker crust, and boston-cream cheesecake ($22 for 8”; $29 for 10”) charms chompers with its vanilla sponge-cake crust, ganache topping, and insistence that everything is "wicked." Diners unwilling to commit to one single dessert can find delicious compromise in an Oreo-cookie cheesecake ($20 for 8”; $29 for 10”) or chocolate-chip-cookie-dough cheesecake ($20 for 8"; $29 for 10"). And because our founding fathers declared the enjoyment of cheesecake to be an unalienable right, Anthony's bakes up sugar-free varieties to suit the sweet needs of the calorie-conscious in flavors such as italian ricotta, baked cinnamon apple, and blueberry.
Anthony's lunch menu ensures diverse midday fare in the form of soups, salads, quiche, and sandwiches that, like the slowest county-fair ferris wheel ever, rotate daily. Past repast offerings have included a beef empanadas platter ($5.95) and a berry-and-walnut-loaded mixed-green salad ($6.95), and slices of fresh buttermilk cake or coconut-custard pie can sate dessert eaters who prefer to leave their fromage on the cracker.
