Looking for kitchen supply store

Hi all,

I've just moved to the fair city of Boston, well, Brookline really, and am looking for places to buy kitchen supplies. By supplies, I mean little things like salad spinner, knives, plates/glasses, etc. It'd be best if these were nearby, or at least on the Green line! Also, I'm not a fan of chains like Williams-Sonoma as I find them unbelievably overpriced, but am more of a fan of mom-and-pop stores and larger restaurant supply stores. Searching the CH boards hasn't been very helpful, so I'd appreciate any info you all may have.

Also, we will soon be in the market for larger appliances (fridge, stove, dishwasher, etc) and would appreciate any help in that department too! In this case, I find that the best price and quality trumps any other factors I may have considered for the above and so don't mind going to Best Buy if I have to!

Thanks for your suggestions!

  1. Not in your neighborhood, but the Linens N Things on Middlesex Tpke in Burlington is
    going to shut down and is having a clearance sale. They have lots of kitchen items.

    1. For part of what you're looking for, check out Bowl & Board - there's one in your town: OR check out China Fair on Mass Ave. in Cambridge:

      For things like dishes and flatware, if either of the above don't have what you're looking for, I'd check out Bed, Bath & Beyond (have always found their selection to be better than L&T).

      For restaurant supply stores, check this earlier CH link:

      1. you might try kitchen arts, in the back bay, for the kitchen gadgets.

        1. re: autopi

          Second Kitchen Arts. We get our knives sharpened there as well.

        2. Yale Electric for appliances.

          Just before you go over the bridge to Charlestown from the North End, there's a restaurant supply store on right.
