Back in the day everybody went to Schrafft’s. For decades the New York City-based chain offered home-style food in genteel surroundings to secretaries, errand boys, court clerks and others watchful of their wallets. Movie stars, politicians, even Presidents stopped in.
James Beard admired “the precisely trimmed egg salad sandwiches.” A young Jackie Bouvier went there after school with her schoolmates, for ice cream. A newcomer to the city, Helen Gurley Brown knew that “eating at Schrafft’s was as New York as climbing to the top of the Empire State Building.” Drinks were served in classic-shaped glass containers with metal holders (so ladies wouldn’t stain their gloves). These nearly-forgotten glasses, supported by gleaming stainless-steel holders and accompanied by elegant, long-handled spoons, are perfect for milkshakes and ice cream sodas, or hot rum drinks.
Schrafft’s Luncheonette-Style Glass with Holder Gift Box Set of 2) are a wonderful addition to your home glassware collection.

We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
Built around SnS Grill’s patented Slow ‘N Sear charcoal kettle accessory, this 22-inch kamado is a premium ceramic grill that brings true 2-zone cooking to a kamado.
Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.
