ChikaLicious Dessert Bar, the wee and long popular East Village dessert spot is on an expansion tear. Reps there reveal they will open an outpost of the dessert bar (which serves multi-course dessert prix fixes) this Friday in the Chanel Building in Shibuya, Tokyo, fitting as the original business serves American desserts but in "Japanese tasting portions." They're also opening an outpost of their casual spinoff Dessert Club in Hong Kong next January. Both restaurants will serve a decidedly New York menu with due consideration given to local tastes.
Meanwhile, back home the owners of the Dessert Bar are shopping for roomier East Village digs and planning more expansions in other areas.
