I LOVE the duckfat fries at Duckfat in Portland, ME

Hoping to find some closer to home though...

Any leads?

      well, they're skinny fries fried in duck fat- very crispy and very delicious.... i'm so bummed that there don't seem to be any places in boston where i could get a beer and a plate of these....

      It looks like Gargoyles has (or has had) them.

          (If I recall correctly) Grill 23 had them as an accompaniment with their Ribeye Steak recently.

          Oh, and Dante in Cambridge serves them with their Gnocchi dish.

            I had this the last time I was there. The fries were tasty, but it was only about two or three of them, and their shape was a strange cross between tater tots and french fries (about an inch long, a pretty chubby half-inch wide, maybe 1/8" thick). Not very crispy, as is my usual desire as well.

            But I wanted to give a warning that if duckfat fries is your goal for going, I would lower your expectations (maybe they can do a fry-only side dish or something though).
