The Absolute Best French Fries in New York – Grub Street

“Chef Jason Atherton’s fries are technically chips, as in the very British kind that are paired off with battered cod fillets and mushy peas. They arrive blotted and buttoned up, almost debonair in a silver cup, and the caddy of condiments on the side augments the properness of it all, down to the lemon wrapped in muslin. Three rounds in the fryer give the potatoes a nice crunchy exterior and a buttery mashlike texture inside.”
