TGI Fry-Day: Fries at ABC Kitchen

TGI Fry-Day

Explorations of the frying arts.

Who doesn't love french fries? We've long been looking for New York's best, and decided that the city's fries deserved more than a post—they needed a column of their own. Here's TGI Fry-Day, your weekly dose of deliciousness. Got a nomination? Let us know. —The Mgmt.

At Jean-Georges Vongerichten's new locavore-friendly ABC Kitchen, you could make a memorable meal of far more virtuous vegetables: cumin-roasted carrots, roasted beets, memorably sweet sugar-snap peas. But don't overlook the fries. A pile of classic frites, kicked up with crisp fried parsley, tender fries with tons of salt and bits of crunch. And though they may be fancy fries, they're served with the everyman's condiment—Heinz ketchup. Available with the cheeseburger, or as a side for $6.
