National French Fry Day 2022 Eat the most costly fries in the world at this iconic NYC restaurant

National French Fry Day (indeed, that is a thing) is occurring one week from now on July 13 and in celebration, iconic New York City restaurant Serendipity3 is bringing back one of its most coveted menu items: the most costly French fries on the world.

This isn’t exclusively a gimmicky stint: the Guinness World Records truly perceived the delicacy, dubbed Creme de la Creme Pommes Frites, as the priciest such offering in the world— so you could truly need to attempt the crispy fries for yourself to understand what all the fuss is about.

Crafted by chef Joe Calderone, the creative director of Serendipity3, and chef Frederick Schoen-Kiewert, the restaurant’s corporate executive chef, the $200 fries are made with Chipperbeck potatoes that are thrice cooked in unadulterated goose fat from Southwest France.

The veggies are then immersed in Dom Perignon Champagne and J. LeBlanc French Champagne Ardenne vinegar, topped with shaved Crete Senesi pecorino tartufello and black summer truffles from Italy, and seasoned with Guerande truffle salt. They are then served with Mornay sauce, which is made with Udder cream, dark truffle butter, Gruyere truffled Swiss raclette, and —wait for it!—sprinkled with 23K edible gold dust.

As a grand finale, the fries are served on a pricey Baccarat crystal arabesque plate. Abruptly, the price tag and coveted Guinness-approved accolade make total sense.

New Yorkers keen on attempting the French fries for themselves can demand to be served them 48 hours in advance of their reservation, which you can make here.

Fun fact: this isn’t Serendipity3’s just record-breaking menu item. The iconic eatery likewise serves the most costly milkshake, sandwich, and dessert in the world, in addition to the biggest cup of hot chocolate and the greatest wedding cake. Obviously, the Upper East Side destination is a treasure trove of exceptional food choices. Why not attempt them all?
