Sur la Table in Towson: A first look

With colorful dishware gleaming and bins stuffed to overflowing with every possible kitchen gadget, Sur La Table opened in Towson Town Center Friday.

Music sung by French vocalists played and espresso was flowing as visitors surveyed the new 4,800-square-foot store managed by Anthony Harris. The store, which will employ more than 20 full- and part-time workers, is still hiring, Harris said.

Sur La Table began in 1972 in Seattle's Pike Place Market with a philosophy that the kitchen is the center of the home. The store sells high-end cookware, knives and appliances, as well as a wide variety of "toys" for the grill, and Barefoot Contessa baking mixes.

The store is located in a newer wing of the mall, and its neighbors include Pottery Barn and Crate & Barrel. It is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and from noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
