Grab a seat at the counter and watch a master at work. Chika is gracious, charming, and very skilled at her art. First comes an amuse bouche of very interesting ice cream (varies from party to party). Then delicate and subtle sweet potato mousse with pecan wafer and orange cranberry sorbet for me, intense warm chocolate tart with excellent pink... More

The concept is nice: a three course meal of desserts. And the presentation is good. But nothing (save a tiny butter cookie) is especially delicious. And the small room is noisy and cramped. I cannot imagine any restaurant in New York that employs a pastry chef not doing better. Therefore, if it is possible, have your dessert where you have... More

This review is for Dessert Club, ChikaLicious which is the Takeout version of the original dessert bar located right across the street at 204 East 10th Street since there was a line outside the door. We were a group of 6 celebrating a friend's birthday & wanted dessert after Japanese BBQ at nearby Yakuniku West. There are a few tables... More

Ridiculously small portions. Long lines. Odd. I don't get it. Maybe I'm not pretentious enough. It looked like a lot of thought and attention went into the dessert but it was overpriced nonetheless. No need to return.

I was in the area eating and came across this place searching for dessert spots. So I decided to give it a try. So glad I did. I ordered the nutella dough'ssant and the salted caramel macron. Both were amazing. The macron might be the best one I've ever had. And the dough'ssant was absolutely delicious. Definitely will be going... More

What a fabulous idea! We went once then had to go back and have all the desserts on the menu and Champagne. There is a take away operation across the road but the sit down is a nice idea for an evening. The owner whose name escapes me is charming and great fun. I gave him my steak doggie bag... More

This was my second visit to ChikaLicious. This time I was able to take both my teenage girls with me. We were there on Sunday, December 23rd. It was a very warm December afternoon. Having been there before I knew I wanted to sit up at the "bar". There was a short wait but we were seated within 15 mintues.... More

Was looking forward to having a great dessert, after a great dinner, but this place left me very disappointed. The coffee (we had cappuccinos) were just OK, nothing special. Decided to share the molten chocolate....very, very tiny...the size of a 2" circle...served with a very tiny taste of peppercorn ice cream..whatever that was, tasted as bad as it sounds!!!! The...
