Racked Highlights Two Smith Street Boutiques Among ‘Essential Shopping’

July 9, 2012

Alongside the likes of such ooh-la-la NYC retailers as Ralph Lauren, Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman and ABC Carpet, Racked has chosen two Cobble Hill boutiques among its July 2012 “38 Essential New York Shopping Experiences.”

The list offers a “north-to-south round-up” of destinations the shopping website declares “worth browsing,” adding, “We tried to include a range of neighborhoods, price points and merchandise, leaving out food stores and anything that’s been open less than six months.”

Epaulet at 231 Smith Street gets a Racked gold star for “staying on-trend without being too slavishly trendy.” Run by a married couple, the mostly-menswear shop “is perfect for guys who like knowing exactly how (and where) their jeans were made. There’s an Orchard Street shop too, but Smith Street is the original.”

As well, Dear Fieldbinder at 198 Smith Street is described as “a clean white box of a space stocked with hip labels like Rodebjer, Miista and Surface to Air. But don’t expect the service to be too cool for school. The staffers here are sweet and attentive and full of good styling ideas, and the denim sales can’t be beat.”

Racked Names A Cook’s Companion Among Nine Best NYC Kitchen Suppliers

July 9, 2012

Shopping website Racked offers its take on “Nine Cooking Supply Stores for a Well-Stocked Kitchen,” and includes A Cook’s Companion at 197 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn Heights as a pick for “shops catering to the adventurous home cook.”

The site says of the popular destination: “A foodie’s dream, this Brooklyn shop offers quality goods, often at 10% below the retail prices of its across-the-bridge counterparts. The friendly staff often provides the final push you need to give into a craving for a new Wüsthof knife or All-Clad pot. And for the home pastry-chefs, be sure to stop by the store’s baking section, because who doesn’t need a martini-glass shaped cookie.”

The other eight shops: Fish’s Eddy, Kitchen Arts & Letters, Bowery Kitchen Supply, Broadway Panhandler, Sur La Table, Korin—all in Manhattan—along with the borough’s Brooklyn Kitchen and Whisk.
