Spring has Sprung

Spring has Sprung…well, it has at Spot Dessert Bar located in New York City! On Thursday March 3rd, the executive chef at Spot, Chef Inky, held a Meet & Greet event where the chef prepared two new spring products live with several food bloggers/Instagrammers including @indulgeneats, @hungrynyc, and @lettucedine.

All of the bloggers that attended were able to taste the two new additions to the menu available Friday March 4th, at 5 pm at all locations and delivered feedback to the chef.

The first was the Matcha Garden: 3-layer cake composed of Japanese Cheesecake, Red Bean, and Green Tea Mousse topped with Green Tea Cake Crumb, with a side of Black Sesame Ice Cream, Black Sesame Crumble, Gooseberries and Ginger Foam. This dessert is gluten free and nut free, but contains eggs and dairy.
