The pommes frites at Ravenous

pommes frites from Ravenous

With mayo, svp.

In America, French fries have been relegated to sidekick -- the Robin to the cheeseburger's Batman. Would you like fries with that? As if a good French fry can't be a reason to visit a restaurant. The fries at Ravenous in Saratoga Springs refuse to take a back seat.

But please, don't call them French fries.

The fries at Ravenous are actually pommes frites. And they're not French -- they're Belgian. They're cut fresh daily and fried not once, but twice, which gives them just the right amount of golden crispiness. Then they're served in a paper cone with your choice of nine different dipping sauces like aioli, pesto or teriyaki.

Sure, Ravenous is known as a crepe restaurant, and you can certainly get a delicious savory or sweet crepe to go along with your pommes frites. Then you can sit by the window with a Moroccan sweet tea while you watch life in Saratoga pass you by. Go ahead, enjoy it all. But we'll know why you're really there.

The Bottom Line

The pommes frites at Ravenous are worth a stop all by themselves. And for the love of all that is holy and good, eat them with mayo instead of ketchup.

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!
