LIST: Celebrate National French Fry Day in Cleveland
Posted at 12:25 PM, Jul 13, 2017

One of America's favorite side dishes: the french fry. Have it on the side of a sandwich or as a main dish, either way, you can't go wrong. To celebrate National French Fry Day, News 5 made a list of five places to get them for lunch, dinner or both!

Banter Beer and Wine

There's no need to trek to our neighbors up North for authentic, Quebec-style Poutine. For those unfamiliar with the dish, it's a french fry lover's dream. Poutine is a bed of fries and cheese curds topped with gravy. At Banter Beer and Wine, there are over eight different poutine dishes. Vladimir Poutine is made with braised Ohio lamb stroganov, borscht gravy, curds and orange zest. Vegetarian-friendly  Forest City Poutine has wild mushrooms, truffle creme, veggie gravy and marcona almonds.

Crispy, seasoned and all around good. If you watch Michael Symon on his many cooking shows, it's no secret he loves French fries. They're presented in an art form, stuffed in a vase-like dish. The fries come out piping out and crispy, as they should be!

Boaz Cafe

A Middle Eastern restaurant with good french fries? It's the case at Boaz Cafe where the chefs take the traditional dish and turn it into something familiar, yet new. The french fries are fried in peanut oil and seasoned with Zaatar, a common spice used in Middle Eastern dishes.

The Greenhouse Tavern

There are definitely options at the Greenhouse Tavern. Customers can choose between three fries. Pommes Frites are for garlic lovers because they're made with raw garlic, rosemary and aioli sauce, perfect for dipping. Gravy Frites are heavy and rich that are made with gravy, mozzarella curd and pepper. The no name frites are a bacon lover's dream made with bacon, a fried egg, whole grain mustard, and mozzarella curd.

Tremont Taphouse

Plain fries or loaded fries, you can't go wrong. Plain steak-cut fries are crispy and are delicious with any dip. The loaded fries come with homemade house cheddar cheese, bacon and scallions. There is also the choice of tater tots for those of us who want to throw it back to childhood.
