pommes frites

This past weekend, John and I went to one of our favorite places in the East Village - Pommes Frites.  They make the absolute best french fries in New York, and the constant line outside the door is a testament to this. (I used to live around the corner from here and could smell them from my window - believe me, it was an exercise in self-control).  This tiny restaurant serves authentic Belgian fries and offers an absolutely gigantic list of unique dipping sauces that are a far cry from the usual ketchup.  We ordered the Vietnamese Pineapple Mayo, Sweet Mango Chutney Mayo, and the Irish Curry, and they were honestly all so good that it was hard to choose a favorite (if I had to though, I'd go with the Mango).  It's tricky to get a seat as the interior is quite small, but there are plenty of neighboring parks where you can grab a seat and ponder which sauces you'll try next time.
