FRENCH FRIES IN MIDTOWN
Hi. I'm taking the afternoon off tomorrow to spend some time with my 5 year old son.
We both love a quality frie but I'm not sure where to go in midtown(40-60 westside).
He is a pretty seasoned little New Yorker so we don't need a kiddie restaurant.
He likes the Odeon and the cafertia at MOMA
So any thoughts where we can go?
I agree with Five Guys for thinner fries. I also think Olympic Pita has good fries as well. I like it because it's just plain old fresh Idaho potatoes. The only negative is that they don't sprinkle it with salt after frying. But I suppose you can add your own.
Presuming you intend to order some other food along with your fries, you could go to Marseille, the bright, bustling French/Mediterranean brasserie, on the corner of 9th Av. & 44th St. The steaks and the burger come with fries, and though it's been a while since I've tasted them, I recall the fries as being excellent.
Try Lucky's on 52nd and almost 9th Ave. Fries are excellent (cheese and chili available) and the burgers first rate. Has a kid friendly atmosphere as well!
