Despite everything we know about the nutritional backwardness of the divine food we call french fries, frites, American fries, etc. there comes a time and place where we must look the prospect of a triple bypass directly in the clogged artery and say, "Eat this!", and just do it.
Pommes Frites on 2nd Ave is one of the few places that inspires such reckless abandon. These fry masters fry their fries not one, but twice! to ensure that perfect texture. They also offer up several dozen homemade dips including several mayos, dijon garlic mustard, Thai peanut sauce, curry ketchup. . . and the list goes on.
Other contenders for best fries include: B. Frites in Midtown Manhattan and Gregory and Paul's stands on Coney Island (across from the Cyclone).
