As a rising chef hopping between three different kitchens (all thankfully within a few Upper West Side blocks in New York City), Glenroy Brown has his kitchen staples that go with him everywhere.
The one tool he’s used throughout his career? The classic Chef’s Knife by Global, the Japanese knife company known for its sleek stainless steel design and dotted handles. He loves the knife so much, Brown says, he had it tattooed on his side. “It was a spur-of-the-moment type thing,” he says of the ink. He’s now had it for “six or seven years.”
Brown has his trusty knife on hand at Lucky Pickle Dumpling Co., the new fast-casual dumpling spot from owner Jacob Hadjigeorgis, as well as at nearby Jacob’s Pickles and Maison Pickle.
Not that you need to submit to a tattoo artist to show your commitment to fine knives, of course. Just buying one should do the trick.
