    Try giving Boca in Novato a call. May still serve them.

    Just checked website and they have them: http://www.bocasteak.com/menu.shtml

      Arcadia in the SJ Marriott. Just my opinion - I like the fries but I don't like the restaurant overall.

        Interesting because Michael Mina and George Morrone have a very close relationship.

        One Market has had them on their menu for years now. They are called big fries on the menu, but their secret is that they are confit in duck fat before frying. Delicious!!

          Unless this has changed in the past year or so, Bistro Elan in Palo Alto used duck fat for their fries.
