Sweet Sticky Things
The Dessert Club by ChikaLicious is always busy. The best time to go is in the late afternoons; however they open at 8 am for breakfast, where you can get any coffee and a croissant for $5.00. So it’s very reasonable. The environment features a lovely, intimate interior with a L-shaped marble counter. It’s a tad small, but it feels like you’ve been let in on a special secret and gives you the feeling you are part of the preparation. They prepare all the desserts right in front of you; so if you have a love for desserts or fancy yourself a pastry chef, this is the place for you. For starters, their portions are the perfect size, so you don’t feel stuffed or like you are cheating, especially if you are on a diet or just trying to get rid of that stubborn 5-10 pounds. After any affair or a big night out, dessert and a limited wine pairing feels like the perfect way to top off the night. I always go for the bottle of Billecart Salmon-Brut or Rose.
This is a perfect date place, or even a place to come with a group of friends. Share many of the popular and quirkily named offerings like the Michelle Obama, the Bun Chicka Bun Bun, or the chocolate chip cookie sandwich. The cookie sandwich, by the way, is my favorite and the cookie is sick!! I recommend the West Village outpost over their East Village location; its much calmer and more ‘grown and sexy.’
