Culinary Company in Dayton, Ohio

Having shopped at this store a number of times over the past several years, I've always felt an "attitude" from the owner and staff. Most recently had difficultly with an item I purchased, and I've concluded that I'll never shop here again. The selection of cooking/kitchen gadgets is run of the mill - you're often buying a brand, rather than a quality product; prices are high; service from both the staff and owner is curt and arrogant. Cautionary note: don't expect any resolution if you experience a problem with any purchase.

  1. Don't like hearing that. They're recently started up lunch service. Have you ever tried their food?

      Nope. I've lived in Dayton for 11 years and have yet to find a place that does good prepared/take home. Generally not of fan of DLM - think it's over rated and expensive, although their turkey wild rice soup is pretty decent.

        Have you tried the fairly new Fresco, on Far Hills just South of Dorothy Lane? I know Welton's just does that after their Wilmington Pike restaurant closed. They're now in Bellbrook. I've only had what they were serving, fresh made, at the Maple festival, and it wasn't special or fancy.
