BEST POT SHOP (1937) Los Angeles 2010 


We all know that too many cooks can spoil the broth. And in these days of celebrity chefs, who doesn’t want to be a cook? If you do, one of the best places around to get cookware like those chefs are using is Surfas, established in 1937 but in its present airy, domesticated-warehouse Culver City space for five years. Food lovers and restaurateurs flock here for the generous, thorough selection of high-quality pots, pans, knives, utensils, linens, colanders, graters, plates, bowls, cutlery and just about anything required for a functional gourmet kitchen. Surfas also has a kitchen-installation department, plus Surfas Café, right there in the store, selling outstanding, hard-to-find prepackaged foods and microcrafted beers along with scrumptious, freshly prepared deli items. The store hosts myriad food-related events and classes, with subjects ranging from “Mochi Madness” to “Rustic French Desserts.” So go kick it up a notch. 8777 W. Washington Blvd., Culver City. (310) 559-4770, surfaslosangeles.com. —ADAM GROPMAN
