Gird Your Arteries! Today Is National French Fry Day

Wednesday is National Fry Day, a day devoted to fried potatoes in all their greasy glory. Cardiologists be damned! As part of the nationwide celebrations, Et Voila! in the Palisades is dishing out free hand-cut frites during lunch and happy hour. Chef Claudio Pirollo is also conducting frite-making demonstrations throughout the day.

I can think of a number of other great fry spots to commemorate the occasion: Granville Moore's (pictured), Amsterdam Falafelshop, Bourbon Steak, Thunder Burger....

What's your favorite fry or frite in town?

    Duck fat fries at Cedar's happy hour. Oh MY.

  2. #2

    Agreed! You can't beat duck fat fries at Cedar. Especially accompanied by the Pork Belly BLT.

    My second fav is at Granville.

    BRABO (for little matchstick fries), Brasserie Beck, and Bistrot du Coin.

    Continuing the dominance of the letter "B", the best sweet potato fries in this town are at Bozzeli's.

    My favorite sweet potato fries are at Cafe St. Ex - sweet & salty with a hint of cinnamon. They do right by the regular potato fries, too.
