Best Indie Kitchen Retailers?

kaleokahu | Nov 26, 201008:41 PM

It being Black Friday, I'm reminded how I HATE shopping at, and supporting, the box stores and chains. Sometimes I even feel guilty sniping for bargains on the "Internets". One of my resolutions for 2011 is going to be to buy local whenever I can, and buy small/independent/USA elsewhere when I must (or when I travel).

So I'm wondering... What do CHs consider the best or their favorite brick-and-mortar, independent kitchen/chef's stores where they live, or even country- or worldwide? Is it Fantes in Philly? The Peppercorn in Boulder? Bridge E. Dehillerin in Paris? City Kitchens in Seattle? And what makes that store your favorite?

Seems to me that if we have a good city-by-city compendium, it might be useful for travelers, tourists and locals alike.
