Blarney Stone Replaces Fries With Giant Potato Wedges
Last week we passed along Peter Cherches’ recommendation of the brisket sandwich at the Blarney Stone (on 3rd Ave. btw. 44+45th) and commenter Larry informed us of this news: “What’s the deal with their new fries, if we can even call them fries? They’ve recently moved onto these huge wedges, which are like 1/4 potato each and in my opinion, a real step down from their previous thick cut fries.” Larry was kind enough to send along this photo, and remarked that according to the guy who takes the orders, the customers have spoken and “love them.” Larry’s not convinced.
The photo may make it hard to put things in perspective, but if you know how huge the burger is at the Blarney Stone you can see these new fries are enormous. And, to be honest- while I don’t normally like thick cut fries (I’m a shoestring man myself; Five Guys fries are about as thick as I like ‘em) these actually look kind of good. Has anybody else tried the new fries?
