Philly wins the cheesecake face-off against New York

    See this photo? That’s the general manager of Manhattan’s ‘CESCA wearing a Phillies shirt. Because last week’s cheesecake face-off resulted in a win for Philadelphia.

    Beginning last Tuesday, Davio’s Philadelphia and ‘CESCA in Manhattan began serving each other’s cheesecake so customers could sample and rate them to see who came out on top.


    Turns out ours is better (like there was ever any doubt).
