A Dream Restaurant-Style Kitchen
Fry turned a pantry into what he calls a behind-the-scenes kitchen. A Wolf coffee system makes smart use of a corner space under the cabinets. $3,195; subzero-wolf.com.
Fry wanted dark countertops to contrast with the cabinets, so he chose soapstone: “It dings, but I don’t mind. We keep waxing it so it gets darker.”
Ford Fry chops while his queso fundido gets gooey in his wood grill.
"I have two: a Scotsman in the basement for crushed ice and a Sub-Zero in the kitchen for cubes," says Fry. From $2,875; subzero-wolf.com
A wall-mounted wheel crank on the Grillworks grill lets Fry raise and lower the grate. $4,460; grillery.com.
Fry stuck with stainless steel for the 48-inch BlueStar range but had fun adding color with the knobs: “They’re an interesting gray-blue color, not real bright.” $10,888; bluestarcooking.com.
“I first saw the Heath Ceramics Dwell tiles at Locanda in San Francisco. They’re a focal point of my kitchen design,” Fry says. From $40 per sq. ft.; heathceramics.com.
