Ex- Pastry Chef visiting from Chicago

I have a colleague visiting NYC Monday-Thursday from Chicago next week that used to be a Pastry Chef and I am trying to think of where to bring him to dinner that won't be prohibitively expensive, but will suitably blow his mind. I'm thinking dinner at Mission Chinese, then the dessert tasting menu at Chikalicious? Any recommendations would be great! What do you think?
