So I thought this question would have been asked a number of times already, but I cannot seem to find it by searching. Feel free to post links to a relevant thread if I'm just clueless.
So, My SO and I love to cook, are getting married soonish, love quality cookware and kitchen tools and hate paying too much for them. As we also hate suggesting our friends and family pay for overpriced items, I am very very reluctant to register at someplace like Bed Bath and Beyond for our gifts. But what is our alternative? If shopping for myself I tend to frequent restaurant supply stores for basic utilitarian necessities, but they do not offer neat little scanners and online registries for my out of town loved ones. So what is our alternative? I'd prefer someplace that has an actual brick and mortar store in the DC/Baltimore area, but an online only store is ok. Is Sur La Table what I'm looking for? I don't want fancy, I want quality...please help!
