I was at Dean and Deluca today looking for a food gift. Any other suggestions for retail outlets to try?Like the idea of combining some tableware and a goodie - but not your typical food basket.
Staying in Brooklyn - so open to suggestions there, or farmers markets etc.
Thanks.

    What are some of the ideas that you're considering? You could also try Eataly or Epicerie Boulud if you haven't already.

      Was thinking about a serving bowl that I could pair with a dip or a platter that I could pair with wine/cheese/compote or antipasto.

        Dean & Deluca is a huge rip. I would suggest going to the housewares dept. in Zabar's upstairs for an appropriate container as well as a large napkin or cloth to lay down, and then shopping on the main level for goodies -- cheeses, special biscuits, salami, and other antipasto, etc., even a special vinegar or olive oil -- to fill it with.
