A Cook's Companion
Affectionately known by locals as “Brooklyn Panhandler,” A Cook’s Companion is neck in neck with top Manhattan cookware emporiums like Broadway Panhandler and Zabar’s. In 2007, the store was voted best overall cookware store in New York City by Zagat Marketplace. Home chefs, professionals, and foodies alike browse Wusthof knives, Le Creuset pans, and other quality kitchen items at the quirky, well-organized space, where most merchandise is marked down at least 10 percent below retail.
