Brooklyn Kitchen, The
616 Lorimer St.
at Skillman Ave.
A neighborhood kitchenware store serving Greenpoint, Williamsburg and parts of Queens.
The shop was opened in 2005 by two Brooklyn home cooks who recognized that they and other amateur chefs in their Williamsburg neighborhood had to travel far to purchase purchase cooking tools and supplies. Today the store offers a selection of tools and equipment for both baking and cooking, and an excellent and popular offering of cooking classes.
Both basic items plus the kind of kitchen tools that home cooks dream about from the best loved brands, including All-Clad, Lodge, Rosle, Cuisinart and others. It's a great place for gifts, such as charming kitchen towels and gadgets.
