i’m going to let you in on one of my happiest spots.

it is the perfect end to any day or evening. it cheers me out of the grumps. it stirs love in the air. it celebrates. and it unwinds.

it’s chikalicious.

” The specialty at this popular, ingeniously realized niche restaurant is dessert and dessert only. Most of the action takes place behind the bar, where the pastry chef and co-owner, Chika Tillman, and her assistants whip up their creations—sorbet floating in sparkling wine, melting wheels of fromage blanc “cheesecake” on great blocks of ice—with the diligent intensity of world-class sushi chefs. On weekend nights, the line can snake out the door and down the block.”
— Adam Platt
