Best Place to Get Service for Forty - 2001
The Restaurant Source
This restaurant supply house was once wholesale only, but now that it's open to the public, it's become the Restaurant Source for household cooks as well. Just about anything you've ever coveted at a local restaurant -- creamers, crumbers, squeeze bottles, cheese shakers, serving trays, booster seats, whisks, chafing pans, dishes, glasses, linens, tongs, baking molds, syrup pitchers and another 8,000 or so items -- is stocked here. Loved that china pattern? The Restaurant Source probably has it. Always wanted a professional-quality sieve? The Restaurant Source definitely has it. And the price on that stainless service for forty is so low that you'll be embarrassed that you ever even thought about pocketing a spoon at your local diner.
