Hmmm well, Maggie my dear, raisins are normal in the traditional Eastern European Jewish cheesecake. And this is not at all the NY Cheese cake, it is a whole variety of its own. I personally like both kinds. This one reminds me of my 88 year old French friend Janine whose nephew makes this for us every year on Yom Kippur. Yumm, bring on those raisins!

I battled the winds and headed to the Marais after reading this post. Thanks, Tory! The sandwich was great – I’d like a tub of that eggplant spread, please.

The cheesecake was good – but not NY-style enough for me. Plus, there were raisins in it. As far as I’m concerned, raisins belong in… wine… oh and before they’re raisins… you know, when they’re grapes… and that’s it. Raisins = ick!

I confirm, these sandwiches are amazing. I love the onion rolls. It makes me think of my Grandma. Also not to be missed is the chopped liver and the cheese cake. Prices are steep, but worth it from time to time. Yumm. If there was not hurricane force wind in Paris right now, I would be there right now!

Well, now I know what I’m taking with me to the airport for lunch before my flight on Thursday. Un Finkelsztajn à emporter, s’il vous plaît!!
