Chicago restaurants celebrate National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day

Celebrate Fall with a slice of pumpkin cheesecake at one of these local spots.

Birch River Grill is serving pumpkin cheesecake, dusted with cinnamon and topped with caramel sauce and whipped cream, $6.

Eli's couldn't settle on just one pumpkin cheesecake, so instead the shop sells four variations. The first is a classic concoction, baked on an all-butter shortbread cookie crust. Then there's a richer version with pumpkin mousse, and another topped with pecan streusel and caramel. The most fitting for the season, though, is Eli's pumpkin caramel Halloween cheesecake, covered in crunchy walnuts and decorated with a sweet caramel spider web, $33-$52.

Dine's pumpkin cheesecake comes in the form of a tart, complete with candied pumpkin ice cream and cinnamon-chocolate sauce, $6.

Blu Coral shows up Chicago with its New York-style cheesecake, infused with pumpkin and spices, $7.
