Frites Las Vegas asks the vital question, “Who says French fries can’t be a meal?” In June, the restaurant debuts inside the Castle Walk Food Court at Excalibur, complete with a counter dressed up like a food truck.
Frites worked on dozens of potatoes and cuts before opting for triangular-shaped fries, based on the shape of Toblerone candy bars, to get the optimal crunch. The fries then go into a beef tallow, much like old school McDonald’s fries, for the crunch factor. Vegetarians and vegans to get their fries cooked in peanut oil.
“We have created flavor profiles with a nod to Americana nostalgia yet with a sophisticated international flair,” the company says. Options teased so far include an everything bagel variety and churro fries.
The restaurant also plans to serve a variety of sauces, ranging from sweet, savory, and chunky, to smooth and sultry.
While not scheduled to debut at the opening, malts, and milkshakes will be part of the future menu once the restaurant gets up and running, as is delivery service.
