Polished & Upscale Shop

Polished & Upscale Shop

This is an unusual business for the area. If you love to experiment with gourmet ingredients, this may be a good option for you.  Visually this place is polished and upscale for a shop on the small side. The shelves are lined with row after row of gleaming silver taps and neatly arranged bottles.

I was the only customer during my visit, and the gentleman on staff offered at least twice if he could help me while I browsed. Tastings require assistance and when I asked to try some garlic olive oil, the staff member was knowledge and had suggestions on uses. The main offerings I tried were flavored balsamic and olive oils.  There were gourmet salts, pastas, soup kits and wine vinegars as well.

Each oil and vinegar had a description and tasting notes on the attached sign…like wine. I have seen other gourmet shops with similar setups, but it came across to me as pretentious. All items were 25% off the day I shopped, and my total for 1 bottle of balsamic and one of oil was less than $25.

I look forward to serving the oil as a dipping oil on New Years. I may not be interested in traveling across the river for these specific ingredients for myself, but this would be a nice place for housewarming gifts.
