Best Home-Cook Kitchen-Supply Store (2012)

Bargain Fair

There are all sorts of places to outfit your kitchen. There are the epicurean temples, selling every conceivable gadget and device you most likely don't need; there are broader home-supply shops like Target and Bed Bath & Beyond; and then there are professional-catering supply stores. Most neighborhoods in Los Angeles have one of the latter within spitting distance, but our favorite is Bargain Fair. It's worth a trip no matter where you live. A family-owned business for more than 30 years, the small, jam-packed shop has all the (white) plates, glasses, forks and assorted spatulas and spoons a person could need. Everything is durable, good-looking, well-priced and sold at a discount if you buy by the box or case. A few name-brand pans and electronics are thrown in the mix as well. What they aren't selling is attitude. Free parking is available in the well-marked lot one storefront to the north. 7901 Beverly Blvd., Fairfax District. (323) 655-2227,
