French fries 

BABETTE'S CAFÉ: Chef/owner Marla Adams' swoon-worthy shoestring fries beckon at this cozy and classic French-Mediterranean restaurant. Adams' gorgeous fries are her homage to a version she had in Istanbul as a child. She credits the dryness of the fries' interior and golden exterior to soaking the potatoes until almost no starch remains. The crispy potatoes are served in a towering pile alongside hearty dishes such as grilled herb-crusted lamb chops with a red wine reduction. 573 N. Highland Ave. 404-523-9121. www.babettescafe.com.

FLOATAWAY CAFÉ: The restaurant takes its produce and preparation seriously, and that's evident in its perfectly executed pommes frites. The freshly cut fries have an intense potato flavor — likely a result of the restaurant's notoriously impeccable sourcing. But the real reason these spuds are so addictive is their ever so subtle sweetness. The fries are offered a la carte or on the side of a smoky wood-grilled hanger steak that's consistently cooked to the correct temperature. 1123 Zonolite Road, Suite 15. 404-892-1414. www.starprovisions.com.

MUSS & TURNER'S: Skip the chips the next time you visit this sandwich heaven and go for the house-made french fries instead. The fries are cut daily, given a quick soak, blanched, fried to a golden crisp and served in a massive — emphasis on massive — paper-lined bowl. It's more than enough for two people. Ketchup will do, but one of the house-made dipping sauces, such as Sriracha aioli, thyme aioli or remoulade, take the fries to another level. 1675 Cumberland Parkway, Suite 309, Smyrna. 770-434-1114. www.mussandturners.com.
