Fork in the Road’s Favorite Fries in New York City


It’s time for Tuesday Toasts, our weekly feature highlighting the Fork in the Road team’s favorite versions of popular dishes and favorite spots in the city for a given activity. They might not be the best or the coolest or the newest, but instead represent the things and places that are near and dear to our hearts. Will the team have wildly diverging opinions or do great minds think alike? There’s only one way to find out. Up this week: Our Favorite French Fries.

“I have to pass on fries. I’m really not a potato person, so basically never order them when I go out.” –Rebecca Marx

“The fries at the Spotted Pig. They’re shoestrings (my fave kind of fries) with fried garlic slivers and rosemary.” –Lauren Shockey

“Tahini.” –Victoria Bekiempis

“Pommes Frites with ‘war sauce’ (mayo, raw onions, ketchup).” –Robert Sietsema

“Mile End, but only when they’re topped with gravy, cheese curds, and bits of smoked meat in the Smoked Meat Poutine.” –Chantal Martineau
