White Plates

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to buy some white plates. I have no idea where to look! Where do fine dining restaurants buy their stuff? I spent all day today running around Manhattan trying to find some nice modern looking plates but all I found were thick Japanese restaurant style plates and the few that they sell at some of the William Sonoma type stores.

Any Ideas? :blink:

TIA

Would you consider Ikea? I've turned over plates in more than one nice restaurant and found their name! Also, Crate and Barrel.

Last one was Villeroy & Bosch - I wouldn't have minded slipping a few of those into my bag. got bucks?

I just recently bought 8 white square plates at a Dollar Tree store. Great plates for $1 each.

It's at least worth a look.

Head to Union Square and check Fish's Eddy. Not sure if the "diner" style plate is what you're looking for, but they've got a few styles of white dinnerware.

I just get my stuff at Crate and Barrel. It's not dirt cheap, but it's inexpensive; you can buy any needed dish and have it match the rest of the set -- if I needed a dozen gratinee dishes to match my plates I could pick them up this afternoon -- they're reasonably durable without looking coarse; and when I break stuff, as I always do, I can replace it with something exactly (or almost exactly) the same years later.
