Founded in 1946, Bridge Kitchenware is the ultimate cook's resource. Stocked floor to ceiling with nearly every cooking tool imaginable, including a particularly large supply of bakeware, it is the "go-to" cookware store when you need something unique, such as a blini pan or a madeleine mold.
Bridge Kitchenware’s dusty, workmanlike atmosphere stands in direct contrast to slick kitchen supply superstores such as Williams-Sonoma or Sur La Table. Walking around the shop's narrow aisles, you might mistake it for an old hardware store. Seemingly ancient wooden drawers contain a stash of arcane molds and utensils. Were it not for the shelves stocked with the latest cooking appliances or the walls lined with the popular orange silicone bakeware, you might think that the shop is intact from the 1940s.
