Trying to find a store where I can get some restaurant-quality onion soup crocks in Northern VA. Any ideas?

    Try a restaurant supply house.
    There's one in the Florida Avenue Market. In the 400 block of Morse Street, NE.
    While you're in that neighborhood, check out Litteri's, Italian foods/importer, 517 Morse, NE. Best prices on olive oil, pasta, parmesan, etc. They make their own sausage which is wonderful.
    Lots to explore in that market area. It's right by Galludet College

      I got mine at World Market. Simple but perfect.

        La Cuisine in Alexandria has them on their Web site. They probably have them in the store, but call them to check.

          My mom lives in York PA and got me a set of crocks for my birthday from the Pfaltzgraff outlet there. They aren't in NOVA, but it might be worthwhile checking to see if you can shop online (not sure when you need them by)?

            Tuesday Morning is another good place to try

              Every time I go to a thrift store (Salvation Army, Value Village) there's always at least two or three onion soup crocks in the cookery section, next to the worn-out frying pans and Elvis plates. And they're usually 50 cents each.

                Have you tried Pier 1 or World Market? They have lots of stuff like that, and cheaper than Sur La Table (there's also one of those at Pentagon Row if that's less repulsive to you than Tyson's Corner).

                  Tried 'em both...I think its time for an internet order.

                    How about Williams Sonoma? If you want something more rustic, there's a kitchen supply type of store in Tysons that might have it. Don't remember the name though.

                  Try any Sur La Table. I know there is one in Tyson's. We bought ours there and love them. I believe they even make ones wit covers now.

                    Thanks so much. I actually have to go to that dreaded mall tonight so I'm glad I asked now!

                      They carry exactly what I'm looking for, but unfortunately only stock them in the winter months.
