What’s Your Favorite Epicurean Shop?

I fear that the days of the corner shop specializing in oils, spices, sauces, and all things savory are numbered. Central Market and Whole Foods have made it too easy for one-stop foodie shopping. Heck, even everyday grocers like Tom Thumb and Kroger carry specialty/gourmet items now. Still, I love that sense of discovery you get when you stumble upon a new vinegar at Flavors From Afar or Italian sauce at Jimmy’s. I love owners that take the time to dole out samples and entertain as well as educate my palate. So, that said, I’m working on a story for the next issue of D Home on the best epicurean shops. I’ll allow bakeries, butchers, and cheese shops as long as they carry various gourmet goodies that fall outside their particular food type. (Example: Scardello is a cheese boutique but also carries great chutneys, sauces, and has a first-rate sea salt bar.) So, SideDishers, let me have it. I have a small list already. But I need more help. Especially in the suburbs. (Hey, Southlake, what up?)
