1st time for 60 year old Mom in N.Y Need Best Rest Best Desserts etc HELP!!!

I have 2 days next week to show the most wonderful Mother in the world the best places N.Y has to offer, I feel a little overwhelmed!!! Help! I know I personally want to stop at Artisanal From. I love cheese ... and Mom is a pastry lover.. I had a clipping of what N.Y.'s best of the best bakery was and lost it .. It had the most beautifully decorated desserts really fancy??? people order them from all over and they do ship maybe they were even on Martha? Also how about a place I heard of with tents and belly dancers??? I will be staying in East Elmhurst Long Island and do not want to disappoint her she has waited all her life for this!!!!
Thank you!!! 2 Daughters

  1. If she's a pastry lover, consider Cafe Sebarsky on 86th Street & Fifth Avenue. Make sure to have the Flourless Chocolate Cake. It's incredible! (This might very well have been the place you're referring to.)

        Wow just looked it up!!!! It looks incredible.. Thanks Kim

      2. ChikaLicious is an all-dessert "restaurant." The desserts served there are the kind you would find in the finest upscale restaurants, i.e., very small, delicious works of art. Sit at the bar where you can chat with Chika as you watch her preparing your desserts. Expensive, but worth it.
