[VIDEO] Trendy vs. Traditional: NYC Cheesecake Edition

Trendy vs. Traditional is an entertaining video series from New York Magazine's Grub Street in which food critic Adam Platt and his teenage daughter Penelope try two versions of the same food: one meant for purists, and one meant for the 'gram. In this recent episode of the series, watch as they explore the New York Cheesecake at Keki Modern Cakes and Eileen’s Special Cheesecake.

When judging a cheesecake, New York restaurant critic Adam Platt would argue the dessert doesn’t qualify if it’s not New York style. His daughter Penelope, however, is drawn to creative variations on the classic. In this episode of “Trendy vs. Traditional,” the duo sets out to compare two versions: the Instagram-famous jiggly cheesecakes at Keki Modern Cakes and the time-honored traditional slices at Eileen’s Special Cheesecake.
