Runner up! – On my last trip to Papyrus I spotted this cute little store and instantly fell in LOVE. I typically shop at William and Sonoma for all my baking needs but this little place is defiantly their runner up. When I first arrived I felt it might be a little out of my price range but I soon found out that most of their items are competitively priced.
Being the baker that I am I went right to the baking section. I was pleased to see that they carry names like Wilton. They had several unique baking sheets, like a giant whoopie pie sheet and a twisted donut sheet. I found both to be ridiculously cute but completely unnecessary so I kept walking.
When I saw their cookie cutters I was jumping for joy. I’m a cookie fanatic and they had several cutters for $1. Yes, folks $1. I didn’t even know you could get something in NY for $1, considering that most dollar stores charge more than a $1 for their items.
Well anyway I enjoyed my trip due to the decent prices and nifty selection.
I’ll be back.
Caution: False Advertising On Online Store – I ordered a set of 6 authentic British Imperial pint glasses from Sur La Table online for $36. They were described to have the official crown seal as was also depicted in the picture. What they sent me instead were 6 cheap Arcoroc glasses. No crown symbol, just some generic lettering at the top. I searched the price of those... yeah, comes out to be $33 for a case of 48. Do the math and they are earning 750% profit by advertising a prestigious glass company and instead sending out cheap generic dollar store handouts. I have written them an email about their false advertising and have received no reply. Use caution when shopping at their online store. No it wasn't a mix up, they don't have Arcoroc glassware listed anywhere in their catalog. At least they shipped them well.
Great Staff ,Great Selection, Creepy manager – I was so happy to find Sur la Table in NYC. I was a long time customer at the the Chicago store and became a customer of the Spring St store the day I moved to the city. The product selection is great and the staff is warm and attentive. The people who work there seem to be accomplished home cooks/former pros and can answer any questions you may have.
Management does leave much to be desired. I recently purchased a stove top espresso maker and when I used it for the first time it leaked at the base. Instead of just replacing the maker I was subjected to an obnoxious game of twenty questions at the hand of the store manager Henry. To make a long story short he came to the conclusion that despite the fact that I have been using an espresso maker for about 20 years I suddenly took to burning this one beyond being functional.
In the end I received a replacement but only after being chastised for something that I did not do. I have since shopped in the store and had Henry help me which has brought me to the following conclusion. Henry uses a smug, all knowing exterior to hide the fact that he knows less than his "subordinates" (I spent 8 years of my life in Chicago working for someone with this same personality disorder).
If you want a great experience look for Julia or Craig, They are real cooks and attitude free and they always are willing to help me when I am in the store.
