Best Fries ?

Time for a new debate.

Suggested categories :
1) Thin cut frite style.
2) Thick cut.
3) With gravy.
4) Open class - anything goes.

  1. Good topic! I love my fries with gravy. Ok, who's kidding who, I basically love any kind of potato. My favourites in the last 6 months are:

    1. Poutine at the new locale of Come and Get It. I had the Ol' El Paso Taco poutine, but I'm pretty sure any version would have been hugely satisfying.
    2. For brunch at Brooklyn Tavern recently I had the Pork Chili Verde poutine. Never had anything like it, but it was very tasty and I won for best menu pick versus my dining companions that day. Had to fend off the forks.

    Hall of fame:
    Blue chip truck outside city hall and across the street from my office. Best fix for the weekday hangover.

      Restaurants should master a simple poutine before starting in on these absurd concoctions

    2. For your category 1, I'd nominate La Palette - the fries that come with the steak frites are out of this world. And they come with a home-made sauce.

      1. For thin cut frite style, I like the frites at Starfish. http://www.starfishoysterbed.com/wp-c...

        For open class, I like the Greek fries at Rails & Ales, which are called Greek fries, but are closer to pan-fried potato slices topped with feta, olive oil, vinegar and oregano. http://dine.to/menus/menu_1894_docume...

        1. Gravy, dipping sauces, and toppings are to me an afterthought. It's always about the execution of frying potatoes.
