A Foodie/Cooks Dream Shop
In fact, it is owned by the same good people as Lenoir, husband and wife team Jessica Maher and Todd Duplechan.
Anyone heading to the Austin Food & Wine Festival? (We are!) If food and wine are your thing, be sure to pop in here.
If you love to cook, you will adore this shop.
If you love to eat, you will adore this shop.
If you just like your house to look pretty and trick people into thinking you know how to cook, you will adore this shop.
Even if you don't think you would buy anything, pop in on the weekend because they usually have some special event going on. Warning - may include free food or wine.
Soooo many pretty books. Great vintage finds and current hot items. Well organized. Really great to just wander in and find something new. I picked up Provence, 1970: MFK Fisher, Julia Child, James Beard, and the Reinvention of American Taste by Luke Barr.
Second: Kitchen Ware
Knives, pots, pans, bar ware, glasses, contraptions. I know I wouldn’t use them but their copper mule mugs are beautiful. On second thought, maybe it's time we tried a Moscow Mule...Could be the new summer drink.
Third: The Vintage Room
Old stuff. Unique finds. More copper. Cast iron. A lesson in quality and durability.
In case you don't speak French (I looked it up), Metier means "profession, trade, or craft". It can also mean "an activity you are good at". So there you go. Aptly named. No doubt many of Austin's talented chefs are shopping here, along with all the rest of us who like to eat.
If you shop there, please tell them Ashley from Casa SoCo sent you!
Open Monday through Saturday, 10 - 7 and on Sundays, 12 - 6.
