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 in...er...NJ? 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.
