There's no such thing as a restaurant fairy, an apron-wrapped pixie who swings her wand and magically makes all of the food service necessities appear--martini glasses, check presenters, yellow industrial mop buckets, to-go boxes, open/closed signs. Fortunately there is the mortal equivalent: Standard Restaurant Supply.
Located on Fairview near Cole Road, Standard Restaurant Supply is a foodie's Never Never Land. Filled with aisle after aisle of cups, glasses, plates, pots, pans, utensils, soap dispensers, trash cans, black plastic mats and aprons, Standard is the place to find anything restaurant-related.
Need a men's or women's bathroom sign? Standard has 'em. Need a 100-quart aluminum stockpot? Standard has your back. The megastore offers everything from iconic, lined guest check pads to Chinese take-out boxes, but unlike other wholesale clubs, you don't have to pay to be a member. Both individuals and businesses can sign up with the store and receive discounts on all of the store's merchandise.
So, if you've always wanted to snag a brightly colored, brushed plastic tortilla holder to make taco night all the more authentic, Standard Restaurant Supply will gladly help you spend your hard-earned dinero.
