Anyone have suggestions for a place with sublime or specialty mashed spuds preferably downtown. Organizing a birthday dinner for a mashed potato connoisseur and need help!
Thanks!

    The lobster mashed at Asia de Cuba are pretty good.

      ACME Bar & Grill! They have my favorite mashed potatoes in the city. They're of the southern "smashed" variety ...so, a pretty chunky and not overly smoothed out with a little bit of skin left on.

        My favorite is the potato puree at Bouley.

          Hi ellenost,

          I know someone is going to say that! Yes, I adore the potato puree at Bouley. The one at L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon is just as good, if not better. However, you can't really get it as an a la carte, so that's the caveat.

          I wish they can put the potato puree as a side at Upstairs. That will be awesome!
