If you’re going to have a meal at The Cheesecake Factory in Los Angeles, this is the one to do it. Not only is it the first Cheesecake Factory location ever, it has its own beach on a lagoon in Marina Del Rey. Unnecessary? Absolutely. Will your extended family who’s in town for the weekend be head over heels for it? You bet.
