Fresh Potato Chips @ K Gee’s Oyster Bar
Fries cut from fresh potatoes are rare enough in restaurants, because they’re so much more trouble to make consistently well than the frozen kind are. Fresh potato chips are even more of a bother, because of the unpredictability of the results. (Potato variation is the problem.) But this first-class little seafood restaurant goes through the bother to make fantastic fresh chips, there to be served with their spinach-artichoke dip. I like them better by themselves or with the wild-caught catfish here.
