Despite amassing multiple outposts in Asia, ChikaLicious owners Chika and Don Tillman never expanded locally beyond two East 10th Street storefronts. That changes November 8, with the opening of a South Village national-rollout prototype that combines their two pastry concepts: a counter serving sweets like the new white-chocolate mousse with lavender-marinated kiwi (pictured), and their retail repertoire of Dough’Ssants, cookie éclairs, and soft-serve concoctions. The $32 three-course prix fixe will be available every day for parties of one or two at the 12-seat marble bar, and breakfast pancakes and eggs will be sold to go from 7 a.m.
