Chikalicious, New York, NY

Chikalicious Restaurant Review

: Heaven may just be this little spot in the East Village where husband and wife team, Don and Chika Tillman, formerly of Gramercy Tavern, plate pretty confections with sushi-like precision as diners look on. Fourteen dollars buys a dessert meal beginning with a teaser in a teaspoon (pray that it's the silky adult chocolate pudding). While the menu changes daily, be sure to look for tempting amuses, before moving on to a main course such as a white chocolate mousse ├ęclair with tangerine-black tapioca salad or the signature warm chocolate tart with pink peppercorn ice cream and red wine sauce. Petits fours including marshmallows, truffles and cookies are the perfect end to the pastry parade.
