Bridge Kitchenware

Bridge KitchenwareLookout Broadway Panhandler, a new kitchenware store has moved into town. Bridge Kitchenware sells products for the professional and home cook, including bakeware, cookware, cutlery, decorating equipment and more. The store is still under construction and in the process of stocking their shelves, but from what I’ve seen so far they carry a large selection of hard to find, specialty baking equipment. I found the store accidentally while walking to the market to buy sugar, and I ended up coming home with cupcake holders and cake boxes from Bridge Kitchenware instead. What a dangerous store to have so close to home.

I did a quick comparison of prices between Broadway Panhandler and Bridge Kitchenware, and Broadway Panhandler won easily on the few items I looked at. I’ll continue to check prices before purchasing, but I have a feeling I’ll be at both stores frequently since they have different equipment in stock. Bridge Kitchenware claims to have over 70 varieties of spatulas to choose from, and I don’t remember seeing more than 10 on my last trip to Broadway Panhandler. In any case, it’s always good to see a little competition between baking stores around town.

We’re getting a Sur La Table, too – on the corner of Crosby and Spring. I’m not sure when it’s opening…

Hi Kelli. Bridge isn’t actually new–they were on 52nd between 2nd & 3rd for decades. They lost their lease recently, I believe, and moved a few blocks south. In the past they were known as a store for *serious* cooks only–if you didn’t have a good sense of what you wanted when you walked in, odds were you’d leave empty-handed. The staff wasn’t exactly desperate to demonstrate how to use something or do much more than tell you what it was. When I worked back-of-the-house at a nearby restaurant, I’d quake whenever the chef sent me there to pick something up–afraid I’d mispronounce something, or use the lingo incorrectly, and be laughed out of the store. Once I got used to the staff, and found my sea legs, I really enjoyed going there. Can’t wait to see the new space!

Ah, thanks for the info Debbie. It’s probably a good thing I didn’t know it was so close to me all that time. Too bad they weren’t so helpful. Maybe a new attitude will come with the new location.

Several years ago I bought from you a small, plain glass stoppered bottle to use for vinegar and oil. Do you have such now? Please e-mail cost plus shipping. Thank you, BC
