Uncle Tetsu’s Japanese Cheesecake, famous internationally for its distinct soft & fluffy cheesecakes, is officially Grand Opening its first store in New York on Monday, July 15th at 135 W 41st Street, in New York’s Theatre District.
At the grand opening, the entire Uncle Tetsu team will be baking our Original Signature Japanese Cheesecake, Honey Madeleines, and Cheesecake Rusks for the anticipating customers!
If you are lucky, you might also catch the Real Uncle Tetsu himself, who will be around. If you spot him, you might just be able to ask him for a photo, but be warned, he will likely ask you to take a crazy face photo, as he often does, so be prepared with your best crazy face for the picture ^^
In previous years, Uncle Tetsu has been growing around the world and has expanded into the West, with many stores now open and ever-busy in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. With one store in Hawaii and another in Los Angeles, this store in New York is actually the first on the whole East side of America.
Uncle Tetsu has had his eyes and heart set for New York ever since he opened the first store in Toronto, and cannot wait to meet the people of New York at this much-anticipated grand opening in the Big Apple!
