It’s time to take a break from our super shopping experience at The Mall at Short Hills and grab some lunch. What better place to stop than the Cheesecake Factory?

A brand new menu greeted us at the Cheesecake Factory, one which offers smaller portions as well as lower calorie options. We started off with these delicious Thai chicken lettuce wraps and well, I admit I offset the calories saved with a Hurricane. After all, I’m supposed to be on vacation aren’t I? I also discovered a dedicated lunch menu and even a gluten free menu! How cool is that?
Check out their menu online – there’s been lots of changes.
My choice included the soup, salad, and sandwich combo. I hate making my my mind so this gave me a chance to try a couple of different things. The chicken salad sandwich did not last long! Susan ordered the side Caesar Salad and the flatbread sausage pizza. YUMM, but I admit we could have just split the meal and shared. Instead, boxes to go came in very handy.
Up next is a slice of cheesecake. I couldn’t pass it up and being a fiend for fruits and white chocolate the white chocolate blueberry cheesecake. Susan got a cup of coffee and the Godiva chocolate cheesecake. Not only are they pretty too look at but delicious to eat. I admit we didn’t need a box for these to take back to the room!
Our service was excellent! Even on a busy Saturday afternoon we were able to get seated and our server was incredibly knowledgeable. She helped me make my choices and offered suggestions, since I had honestly never been to a Cheesecake Factory before. Her help and friendly manner made the whole experience fun and fabulous.
Don’t forget to stop by the cheesecake case on your way out. I would have been tempted to get more, and I will as soon as I go to the one in the Galleria in Houston. Even better, I’ve got FOUR locations to choose from here in Houston. But I have more shopping to do and a delicious dinner at The Office Beer Bar and Grill to save some space for.
