Spin New York is the original ping pong social club. The menu at the Spin Cafe reflects an atmosphere of diversity and includes inspired global offerings such as Chef Bowser's Goat Cheese and Pistachio Dukkah Sundae in a Waffle Bowl. Laura Chenel Spreadable Goat Cheese, honey and dry pea flowers are combined with heavy cream, milk and salt in a deep purple ice cream that's scooped on top of quartered grilled figs in a waffle bowl. More grilled figs, goat cheese crumbles, pistachio dukkah (a crunchy Middle Eastern condiment), honey and edible flowers are layered on top.
