  1. HERB BENHAM: Cooking up reasons to visit restaurant store

    Talk about fun. Satisfying. This week I made two trips to J&E Restaurant Supply on East 19th Street.

    The first time I bought four Old Fashioned glasses ($2 and change each) and a stainless-steel muddler. The next day, I backed it up with four more glasses and a blue bar knife good for peeling, chopping, slicing and looking like something a cool Bay Area artisanal cocktailist would use.

    J&E is jammed with ladles, pots, pans, glasses, dishes, plates, stoves, dishwashers, ice makers, scales, slicers, aprons, floor mats, griddles, grates and steamers.
