Gira & Gratta cheese/grater in L.A.?

Chowpatty May 12, 2008 03:13 PM

If you've been to Terroni, you've seen those cool Grana Padano cheese graters that store the cheese in the grater. By googling, I found out they're called Gira & Gratta -- has anyone seen those specific kind for sale in L.A.? I don't think I saw them at Surfas, and I forgot to ask at Terroni.

    You might try some place like Claros, they might carry it. It isn't a brand new product-after some Googling I see its been around since 2005.

      Thanks - actually Claro's is the one place where I looked really thoroughly and didn't see it.

        Call the San Gabriel store (main location) and talk to Bob--he runs Claro's and orders everything. He can probably get a line on it and would order it. Interesting Bob is Jewish from Brooklyn and married the owners daughter.

      I'm sure Terroni would sell you one or two. I've been to restaurants where I liked some kind of condiment or something and inquired about buying it and they've either sold it to me or given it to me.
