The 14 Best Flatware Sets, According to Experts

Also available at Amazon.

This vintage-inspired set made of high-quality 18/10 stainless steel looks like a heirloom set but is dishwasher safe with a mirror finish. Architect Jenny Ko had a hand in designing Elwood, with her husband and head chef, Chef Adam Diltz. Elwood is a restaurant whose mission is to reinvigorate Pennsylvania’s country cuisine. Think white linen tablecloths, the most elaborately presented scrapple (served dramatically stabbed upon antlers), and afternoon tea service on the weekends. Elwood has one of the most unique flatware collections in Philadelphia, if not the nation.

“We tend to go for silverware which gives off a nice luster and requires periodic polishing, though even when it’s not freshly polished, it still feels warm,” says Ko. “We have many special utensils in circulation at the restaurant – pastry forks, butter knives, cheese knives, sugar tongs, serving forks, and spoons.” Liberty Tabletop’s Sheffield flatware has modern practicality – it’s made of 18/10 stainless steel and thus ideal for heavy-duty restaurant use, but you can opt for sets that include a litany of specialty serving utensils.
