Looking for a kitchen work/prep table - where to buy?
Hi - I've moved into an apartment with a tiny kitchen and would like to add a table for extra prep/work space. Does anyone know a good place to buy such a thing in NYC or (if I must) online? Ideally would have butcher top and a shelf below, 36-48 inches long. I'm hoping to spend under $500.
Just go down to the restaurant supply places down on the Bowery (below Houston) and ask around.
I bought mine at Paragon, a 2'x4' restaurant grade stainless steel work table with one shelf (where I store my pots and pans). They told me the price, brought it out flat-packed from the back, I threw it in a cab and voila.
Many different sizes and styles down there. Go into 3 or 4 places to compare prices.
Even though I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, I can tell you that the best butcher block tables in the USA are made by John Boos & Co.
Check them out at www.johnboos.com, there Townhouse model is exactly what you are looking for and in your price range. Look under the "specs" area and then click on "butcher blocks" for pics and info.
