We put together a round-up of the BEST fries in NYC according to our resident foodie Instagrammers. Here’s the lowdown on where to find some fried potato perfection.
According to The Food Joy
Vol de Nuit .. “they have the most perfect fresh cut Belgian style fries with freshly made mayonnaise. They have a cute outdoor space, too, which is perfect for post-work happy hours!”
Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken … “their loaded fries are so, so bad for you but are so, so good! I go once a month on a Friday with some other foodie friends and have an epic cheat meal, and these fries are always part of the mix!”
“Definitely not fancy by any means, but Wing Stop in Crown Heights, Brooklyn has the most addicting fries. I swear they put sugar on them… french fry crack. When I lived nearby, I would stop here on my way home if I was having a bad day and needed some emotional food support!”
According to EatMeNYC
Black Tap – “best sweet potato fries – better than their shakes in my opinion.”
Boucherie – “the best pommes frites – they’re crunchy and soft at the same time and have the perfect amount of saltiness.”
Black Iron Burger – “their loaded fries are crack – cheese bacon and ranch! Absolute heaven.”
“and I can’t forget Leave Rochelle Out of It – huge portions of yummy truffle parm fries in an awesome atmosphere.”
According to Let’s Eat Yall
Burger Fi – “they have a dish called “Cry & Fry” that has a pile of crispy french fries topped with onion rings and your choice of toppings…it’s absurd! Very Instagram friendly as well ;).”
Llama inn– “it’s not technically labeled “french fries,” but the beef tenderloin stir fry dish is topped with tons of delicious fries and served with a million other delicious toppings. Definitely my favorite way to eat fries :).”
According to Hungry Blonde
“The Pommes Frites at Dirty French in the Ludlow Hotel are for those of us who like the heartier fries in life. They’re not your traditional pommes frites – more like potato wedges that are fried to perfection: a thick crispy outside layer and soft on the inside, served with a flavorful aioli for dipping.”
“If the name doesn’t give it away, American Cut’s Beef Fat Fries are exactly what you’d expect from a steakhouse. As if fries aren’t addicting enough, these are served with AC Secret Sauce, and I’m pretty sure the secret is crack.”
According to Talk Foodie to Me
“I am obsessed with the Parmesan truffle fries from Lexington Brass, always have been for some reason.”
“BBQ fries from Beauty & Essex are like the perfect amount of seasoning/spice.”
“Crinkle cut fries from Sarges Deli are SO good and crispy.”
“last but not least… CHICK-FIL-A waffle fries will always and forever be my favorite fries on the planet – yes, planet.”
