OUR STORY

Founded by cousins Chatchai "Chai" Huadwattana and Ace Watanasuparp, Spot Dessert Bar opened its doors in November 2009 at 13 St. Marks Place, in New York City's East Village. Formed under Chace Restaurant Group (CRG), Spot brings together decades of restaurant and cooking experience to create a dessert concept that emphasizes tradition and innovation. Think Western style desserts, influenced by Eastern flavors. 

 

Raised in Thailand, Chai explored the country's culinary depths, leading him to cook for a revered Thai temple, as he was influenced by Bangkok's famed Wat Sai Floating Market. Growing up in NYC, Ace worked at several of his parents' restaurants. From waiting tables to cooking, Ace learned the ins and outs of the restaurant business, and ever evolving culinary scene of New York City. Today, Chai and Ace are owners of over 15 restaurants including Obao, Lucky Cat, Aroy Dee and Gai Chicken & Rice. 

Our inspiration for Spot Dessert Bar came when during our travels around the world, it hit us that there were very few restaurants in the United States that infused classic American desserts with an Asian influence. Spot’s vision is now coming to life with the help and guidance of consulting Asian pastry chef guru Ian Chalermkittichai (“Kittichai”). Chef Kittichai has created a new menu for Spot, offering fresh interpretations of desserts he enjoyed from his childhood and his extensive travels.
