One day, I'm taking a trip to New York!
A dear friend asked me 'why'?
Well here's one very good reason ...
Today on Martha Stewart, as part of her 10th street restaurant tour she took us to 'Chikalicious' ...
Est. 2003, Husband and Wife team Don and Chika Tillman feature fresh,
fun and innovative individual desserts, as served in NYC’s top restaurants.
This intimate, 20-seat eatery is built around an open kitchen where the chefs
and sommelier work and serve customers directly.
If you are passionate about food, here is your chance to enjoy fabulous
desserts while watching both their preparation and plating.The 3-course Prix Fixe menu, described as American desserts,
French Presentation and Japanese tasting portions (guests wishing a quantity
based “brimming at the seams” experience, are encouraged to order additional
or “add-on” desserts @ $7 per), is $12; and includes an amuse, dessert of
your choice, and assorted petit fours.
They also offer a select list of wines, dessert wines, ports, and champagne,
along with organic coffees and teas.
The menu provides suggestions for the best pairing for your dessert.

If this isn't one of the best reasons to go to New York then I don't know what is ?
