Feast Your Eyes on the Country’s Coolest New Bookstore

You may recognize Brooke Williamson from Top Chef, but the culinary pro’s skills don’t stop at the small-screen kitchen. Williamson and her husband, Nick Roberts, have made a name for themselves in the restaurant world with their beachy L.A. eateries, Hudson House, The Tripel, and Playa Provisions, and now they’re garnering some cred in the literary scene, too. The entrepreneurial duo have just opened one of the coolest bookstores we’ve ever seen…

Tripli-Kit, which is located adjacent to the Tripel in L.A. beach town Playa del Rey, is devoted to cookbooks, culinary essentials, and kitchen gadgets. In other words, it’s a food lover’s playground—and we’ll no doubt be making frequent stops there. Not going to be in L.A. anytime soon? Don’t you worry: You can shop the store online.

We caught up with Williamson and Roberts to hear a little bit about how this space came together. Read on below.
