Pomme Frites in NYC is a cult favorite place for fries in NYC–and all they serve are fries and their dipping sauces! I can never go to this place often enough, so I've learned to make my own at-home simple version: prepping and baking some fries, then mixing up some Pomme Frites-inspired sauces. I definitely didn't know how simple they can be to make!

Pomme Frites specializes in Belgian-style french fries, which are characteristically double-fried fries. But most college students do not have access to a fryer or do not want to deal with the hassle of working with vats of hot oil.

This recipe is adapted from the original recipe as a simpler, smaller serving size alternative. Baking our fries, which eliminates risks of frying, requires less attention during cooking and is a healthier cooking method. 

The baking does require a 30-minute wait, but is the line at 128 Macdougal St any faster? For those inebriated nights, use extra caution.
