If you’re a dessert devotee, consider Chikalicious your mecca. This East Village dessert bar churns out incredible seasonal desserts year-round, but we’re particularly obsessed with their Fig Brulée, a perfect dessert for fall. But it’s probably not what you’re thinking. Nothing ever is at Chickalicious, which is what makes eating here so interesting. Instead of the traditional creme brulee-style approach, they add a gently torched fig to a sunny yellow zabaglione cream and top the whole thing off with a citrusy dollop of lemonade sorbet. The combination of flavors, temperatures and textures is out of this world and we don’t say that often.
