Coverage from Mashable

You know what they say about New York: It’s a melting pot — or, deep-fryer? — of cultures.

From Nov. 6 through Nov. 8, a gallery space at 168 Bowery in the NoLita neighborhood will be transformed into a french fry sanctuary. Eighty french fries from acclaimed New York restaurants have been placed under glass domes and tidily arranged along white tables for the public to salivate over.

The exhibition is called “Fries of New York, An Uncommon Exhibition,” and the name holds up. It’s not every day you get to stare into the depths of a fry specimen for an extended period of time without being asked if you’re okay.

Also, there will be cocoa and chili-dusted waffle fries.

Mark Ramadan and Scott Norton are the creative forces and fry curators behind the pop-up shop.

If anyone knows the importance of a good fry, it’s them. Outside of the exhibit the two are cofounders of condiment company Sir Kensington, which serves ketchup, mayonnaise and mustard. All of which, would be futile without a proper potato accompaniment. Read more.

Location: Astoria
Chef: Rob Cano & Kert Eggers
Notes: There is nothing quite like the twisted potato. It is tall, tan, handsome and lightly salter. The style of the fry and its shapes ensures that each piece is cooked evenly. The twisted potato has the crisp outside like a potato chip but a soft interior like a classic fry. These fries are made to order, fresh never frozen, and made with one ingredient: the potato.
