Bowery Restaurant Supply
183 Bowery St.
Many professional cooks buy their pots, pans and other tools at restaurant supply stores like this one. The prices are great, they carry the equipment most commonly used in restaurant kitchens, and most tools are made so as to take the wear and tear of daily use.
Apart from the big sinks, refrigerators, stoves and large storage containers, there aren't many differences between the tools of a professional kitchen and those of a home cook. That makes stores like Bowery Restaurant Supply a perfect destination for city cooks.
Pots, pans, knives, special cooking and baking tools, tools and gadgets, all at excellent prices. Inexpensive and robust glassware and dishes.
What to know:
Stores like this don't sell the most familiar brands so you should do your research first about what you need, go with a list, and be prepared to buy based on functionality, not the label.
