Miami's Ten Best French Fries

2. The "sweet frites" ($8) at Haven are coated with a spiced brown sugar mix that evokes Thanksgiving memories, but we bet your grandmother never served them with a citrus-y spicy dip. The lemon cayenne aioli that accompanies these French fried beauties really cuts through the weight of the sweet potato (a bit of spice and brightness combats the rich, starchy flavor). Plus, the overall crunchy exterior hides a smushy inside, making this our favorite sweet potato fry.

1. DB Bistro Moderne's garlic pomme frites are amazing ($7 during happy hour, $9 during dinner) because of the extremely generous helping of freshly chopped herbs and aged parmesan tossed over the top of the warm fries (causing it to melt slightly into the potato). However, the reason DB wins our admiration is that they don't just make the best pomme frites in town, it's a tie between that, and the gaufrettes.

Sort of a cross between a fry and a potato chip, DB's gaufrettes (above) have an almost transparent surface. They are shaped like potato wedges, but are completely hallowed out inside; light, crisp and beautiful! You'll have to either order the smoked salmon club sandwich (they come on the side) or ask for a special order though; the gaufrettes, sadly, are not sold separately.

Big Pink's polenta fries are pretty darn good, so I'm going to have to try the ones at Harry's for comparison now.
