Now there's a new shop to browse while you're waiting for a table at weekend brunch classic M. Henry: The owners of the nearby Andersonville housewares store Roost have opened the Hutch, a one-room source for vintage kitchen goods.
The sunny space is stocked with stacks of plates, cutlery, pitchers, gravy bowls and more items that remind us of our great-grandmother?s kitchen, from which only good things emerged.
Throw a mix-and-match dinner party with dishes that once graced restaurant tables or retro serving platters to bring warmth to an otherwise streamlined tablescape. The Hutch has a formidable collection of Ball jars, which look like the perfect vases for spring wildflowers, and we?re planning to repurpose a set of gleaming chrome canisters as utensil holders for our unruly spatulas and basting brushes.
The Hutch is a back-in-time ode to a simpler style of kitchen, and with the farm-to-table dining movement swiftly becoming more mainstream than moment, we know just where we?ll source the accessories for our next wholesome feast.
The Hutch, 1550 W. Olive Ave.; 773-506-0406
