All of our meats are raised with love and without any added antibiotics or hormones.
Our chickens are Marys free range chickens which are fed a vegetarian diet with no added GMO. We spatchcock (de-bone) before cooking in the rotisserie oven. Spatchcocking the chicken allows for a crispy, more flavorful chicken while also ensuring none of the meat gets wasted.

Our planet is just as important to us as good, healthy food therefore we strive to use eco-friendly materials whenever possible. Reclaimed wood has been used throughout our restaurant, while all of our chairs are made from recycled aluminium and Coca Cola cans. Guests who are dining in will be served their meals on bamboo plates while take out orders are placed in recyclable/biodegradable packaging.
Spinnerie is the only restaurant in the San Francisco Bay Area with a rooftop herb garden. We grow all of our own herbs which you can see from the side of our building on Pine Street.
