All the New York bakeries that lay claim to the best cheesecake in the city might want to beware: there's a Belgian outfit in town that could give them a run for their money.

Les Tartes de Francoise makes glorious cheesecake, yet they're not necessarily looking for headlines. They're not even looking for foot traffic. This speakeasy-style bakery involves a little bit of detective work to find. But if you watch my latest video, I'll take you behind their (almost) unmarked doors.

Editor's Note: As of January 2012, Les Tartes de Francoise is currently closed.
