1st In Good Taste
I love this cute little store. The staff greets me, then leaves me alone until I need something. In Good Taste may not have quite as vast a selection as Sur La Table (I shop at Sur La Table also), but their prices are much more reasonable. The same tiny Epicurean cutting board that I saw at Sur La Table for $13.95 was $9.95 at In Good Taste. Seriously, a $4 mark up at Sur La Table. They also have biodegradable bags. So, go to In Good Taste first. If you don't find what you need, go down a few blocks to Sur La Table.

Pros: Not corporate, better prices, environmentally friendly, good selection, helpful (but not annoying) staff
Cons: If you're looking for something VERY specific, you might not find EXACTLY what you need?
