This is a haute cuisine kind of place. The exquisite desserts that are served here are not for eating, but for tasting. The wines are paired with each dessert and add a great last touch to the picture.
Chika's been helming this préfixe dessert for as long as I remember. Both her and her husband runs a tight ship. There isn't as much of a wait these days as I remember but that says nothing about the quality and heart she puts into preparing each dish.
Been wanting to try this place but the last time we visited the area, we were informed that they were closing for a little break for a few weeks. Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago on our latest NY trip, we finally stopped by and were able to get a seat immediately. This place reminds me of Sweet Raku in Vegas. For a $18 prix fixe, you get a 3-course consisting amuse bouche, your choice of main dessert, and a plate of petit fours. I studied the menu for a long time and still couldn't figure out what I wanted, so I asked Chika herself for a recommendation and with no hesitation she recommended the cheesecake. But just so you know they rotate their menu ever so often that what you see on yelp might not be the one that's available that day but the Fromage Blanc Island Cheese Cake (Il Santo Zari) is the one that they always have on the menu. It's so fun watching all the chefs work and prepare the dessert in front of us. It's a work of art is what it it is. Our amuse bouche is a coconut milk lemonade sorbet that was simply refreshing and not too sweet at all, very enjoyable. My guy ordered Orange Watermelon Sorbet and Cantaloupe Melon Sorbet in Chilled Tequila Custard Soup with Cilantro Agar Agar (Quady Essensia Orange Muscat 2015). My cheesecake was very enjoyable, taste good with somewhat a mousse texture. Our friends both ordered the Basil Sorbet on Strawberry Brûlée with Cointreau Sabayon and Frosted Pistachio (Malvasia di Casorzo Dolce 2016). I was very taken back with how good the basil sorbet was. It was incredible. Our petit fours were coconut marshmallow, lemon cookie, and dark chocolate.. all three were pretty good as well. I didn't order a drink here since we were going to a bar but they have good selection of wine and other beverages. Items were ready at a good pace and oh I thought it was a little funny that the busser call you papi or mami at a French dessert place lol. In a nutshell, very good desserts at a clean modern place with classy ambience. It's a good experience and would love to return if we are in the neighborhood again but only if it's not too busy (the place is quaint so it can get pretty crowded), though they do take reservations for before 7pm.
