Best French Fries - 2013
The Vine Mediterranean Cafe and Market
3171 S. Grand Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63118
The fries from soulless fast-food dollar menus pale in comparison to those found at the Vine on South Grand Boulevard. Made fresh from hand-cut Idaho potatoes, the Vine serves up a heaping portion of delicious fries at a price that would make McDonald's executives squirm. Just $3 gets you a filling plate of crispy, well-seasoned french fries, served with ketchup. Undoubtedly, the best part is the seasoning — a Mediterranean blend of salt, zaatar and sumac. Because the Vine is dedicated to lighter food options, the fries are cooked in vegetable oil, so they they come out crisp but never oily.
