Although not in Kitsilano, the opening of Williams-Sonoma on South Granville (2903 Granville @ 13th) will probably appeal to Kits cooks. This beautiful, ritzy kitchen store from South of the border offers some high end cookware, as well as some gourmet food items and cooking ingredients. Although we are well serviced with a couple of Ming Wo stores, the more than decent Basic Stock, and the beautiful Cookworks (also just outside Kits), Williams-Sonoma is a nice addition for high-quality kitchen (non-)essentials.
When we were checking out the new store on Jan. 1st, we were greeted with free coffee and lots of samples of the Christmas goodies that were on sale. If you hurry they may still have some.
