BEST CHEESECAKE 

Accurso's Italian Restaurant

Critics' Choice

Not long after young restaurateur Anthony Accurso purchased his cousin Joe's trattoria on the south side of the Country Club Plaza, he enlisted his grandmother Mimi to start baking her distinctive cheesecake — a light, exquisitely fluffy creation — for his restaurant. Not realizing how popular the dessert would become, Anthony and Mimi agreed that she would make two cakes a week. Anthony was soon selling out of the made-from-scratch dolce faster than his grandmother could keep up with the demand, so she trained his kitchen staff. "It's a secret family recipe," Accurso says, "but if my customers want it, I make sure we have it, whether my grandmother makes it or not."
