Crispy, curly or crinkled, L.A.’s fry scene has it all. Here are some of the best baskets the City of Angels has to offer.

Cassell’s Hamburgers Koreatown hot spot Cassell’s sits inside the ubertrendy Hotel Normandie. The resto’s patties have withstood the test of time—since 1948—and, with that, so have the fries. Be sure to try accoutrements such as the in-house mayo made from Chino Valley Ranchers organic eggs and a secret seasoning on top of the crispy, 3/8-inch-thick-cut Kennebec potatoes.

Chateau Marmont Helmed by executive chef Dean Yasharian, the traditional American restaurant attached to the famed hotel and its bungalows boasts some of the most cravable fries in town. For late-nighters, Parmesan truffle fries are on offer, perfect to share with the table... or not. West Hollywood, 323.848.5908

Father’s Office Top Chef Masters alum Sang Yoon knows how to make a mean burger with a set of delectable fries to match. The Culver City gastropub is best-known for its Office Burger, plus European-inspired fare that features locally sourced ingredients. Whether you’re craving the sweet potato frites or the traditional frites with a side of garlic parsley aioli, you can count on these taters to be some of the freshest around.

The Tower Bar The historic 1929 West Hollywood hotel has a new story to be told—one of perfectly fried French fries. Casually sit poolside enjoying a stunning view of the city while snacking on the classic side from the Afternoon Bites menu, which can be tossed in truffle oil on request. Or, head indoors for a more elegant experience and pair them with the unbeatable Tower Burger. West Hollywood, 323.654.7100

Wally’s Beverly Hills As the ultimate wine bar for the Beverly Hills set, here you’ll find fine vino pairings with three mouthwatering varieties of pommes frites. Take your pick: skinny served with Wally’s famous ketchup; truffle with grated Parmesan and shaved burgundy truffles; or twice-fried smashed fingerling potatoes with truffle salt. Bon appetit!
