A now-closed, once-loved Brooklyn cooking store will be replaced by another much-loved Brooklyn cooking store. Williamsburg’s Whisk will move into the Downtown Brooklyn space occupied by A Cook’s Companion, which closed in February so the owners, they told Brooklyn Heights Patch, could spend more time with family. The new Whisk, co-owner Natasha Amott tells Grub, will open on May 1.
A family-run store that will celebrate its ten-year anniversary this November, Whisk is a great resource whether you’re looking for cocktail ingredients, cake stands, or cookbooks.This location in Brooklyn Heights is Whisk’s third. The store is still in the process of being built out but Ammot says that it will “stay true to Whisk’s selections,” which she adds dovetails nicely with what was sold at A Cook’s Companion. It sounds like they’re trying to fill the void, and Ammot says they’ll tailor offerings to what neighborhood customers ask for.
“When I first moved to New York, I lived not too far from Cook’s and brought some of my kitchen essentials there,” she wrote. “It’s great to move full circle.”
