Nyack's Cheesecake Queen, Lisa, Does it Again & Again & Again.
In 2013 when it came time to decide which one to enter in the flavor category, she couldn’t decide. She bakes and sells them at the West Gate Restaurant in Nyack and because the customer response is so overwhelming for her cheesecakes, she decided to let the customers choose for her. She set up a People’s Choice for a flavor to enter and after over 100 submissions the most popular choice was Coconut.
If you ask her which is her favorite she finds it hard to answer. “I’m constantly asked which is my favorite and I honestly can say they all are. I created each one after flavors that I love. Each one has such a full body of flavor, creaminess and taste and with the different types of crust only makes it more difficult to decide. The Pumpkin has some sentimental meaning and I love the flavor with the gingersnap pecan crust. The Espresso is made with Kahlua which really adds a nice rich coffee flavor. The Amaretto is made with Amaretto Di Soronn and topped with sliced almonds. I also make Cherry, Strawberry, Cookies n’ Crème, Nutter Butter Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip, and Pina Colada. All the fruit ones contain fruit inside as well as on the top. A whole plain weighs up to 6lbs. and a whole flavor cheesecake can weigh up to 7 lbs. “ I can also make any flavor that a customer suggests. I like to be creative,” says Lisa. One customer requested a Hennessey Cheesecake which he loved so much he reordered more. Another new favorite is a Jack Daniels Honey and the newest which won 1st place this year is her Key Lime.
“Watching the expressions on the customer’s faces are always an enjoyment to watch. I tell everyone to let it melt in their mouth. Then the full flavor fills your pallets and you’re in cheesecake heaven. You can actually see the expressions on their faces and their body language change and that is when I get the full satisfaction from all my baking. “
People come from all over the tri-state area just for the cheesecakes and have even taken them as far as Florida, Chicago and Detroit.
The West Gate Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. When you stop by Lisa will love to give you a taste test of the cheesecake flavors. You can either order an individual slice or order whole. Each one is individually handmade by Lisa. So pick a flavor, take a bite, close your eyes, and take a trip to paradise.
