French fry lovers, rejoice. The world’s most expensive fries are returning to the Upper East Side this year for National French Fry Day. Costing a whopping $200, you’ll find the ‘Creme de la Creme Pommes Frites’— as they’re known— back on the menu at Serendipity3 starting Wednesday, July 13th.
The fries from Serendipity3— located at 225 East 60th Street, between Second and Third Avenues— currently hold the Guinness record for the world’s priciest french fries, which are made from some of the most luxurious ingredients available.
The chef starts with the highest quality Chipperbeck potatoes— which are described by the grower as the ‘world’s finest’ frying potato— then blanches them in Dom Perignon Champagne and J. LeBlanc French Champagne Ardenne Vinegar.
After that, the decadent fries are cooked three times in pure goose fat from southwest France— sorry, vegetarians and vegans, these fries are not for you.
Once perfectly golden, the fries are topped with shaved black summer truffles and pecorino tartufello— both from Italy— and are seasoned with truffle salt from France.
The pricey spuds are then sprinkled with edible 23 karat gold dust and paired with a Mornay sauce— a fancy name for a cheese sauce— made with cream, black truffle butter and Gruyere Truffled Swiss Raclete cheese, simmering with gooey deliciousness.
The whole thing even comes served on swanky Baccarat crystal Arabesque plate.
Serendipity3, founded in 1954, is known for making the most expensive milkshake, sandwich and dessert— and originally introduced the the world’s most expensive fries last year.
Just be sure to let them know you’ll be having the fries when you make a reservation— the Creme de la Creme Pommes Frites must be ordered in advance.
