The Oxford English Dictionary traces "French-fried potatoes" back to 1894, and suggests that the usage is American in origin. "French-frieds" were first mentioned in print in 1915. The term "French fries" dates to the Thirties. "French 75" is a cocktail made from gin, Cointreau, champagne, and lemon juice, and has nothing whatsoever to do with potatoes. French fries cut thinly, fried crisply, entwined in a nest of fried fresh herbs, and piled high upon a platter are informally known as "patate frite alla Toscana." You can get them only at Il Migliore, the ultimate neighborhood Tuscan-style trattoria that is also known for perfectly cooked pastas; scrumptious meat, poultry, and seafood dishes; reasonable prices; and a can't-be-beat 28-wines-for-$28 program. The French fries at Il Migliore were first mentioned in print as the best in town in 2007 by Miami New Times, which traces the origin of the recipe to chef/owner Neal Cooper, credits the fries' fulsome flavor to Mr. Cooper's relentless quest for quality, and notes that the price for a table-sharing platter's worth is $6.95.

I had my birthday party at Il Migliore and it was the best birthday I ever had. The food was incredibly superb. The special fish of the night halibut that I had was moist and perfectly cooked. I had it with the Tuscan Fries. Absolutely the best fries we have ever had anywhere. Fried golden brown and crispy tossed with all these different herbs. My girlfriend and her parents love it so much we are regulars there. It's the fries that make us go back its very addictive.

Just in case you were wondering, my girlfriend and I split all of those dishes, and our check came out to be 54 dollars flat (which includes the 15% tip).

Ok, first off allow me to warn EVERYONE...this place closes at 3 then opens again at 5 for dinner. I come from Italian roots, I've even been there 3 times, and if I had the choice, I would live there, but COME ON! close at 3? This is not Italia, we dont close down our shops during the mid day, only to open again later on, this is the US guys, get it straight. The waiters were also rather rude to my girlfriend and I when we tried to walk in after 3.

Ok, all that aside, we came back at 5 and it was a totally different atomsphere. The waiters were friendly, courteous and polite. Which either means the lunch guys suck and the dinner guys are cool, or everyone there is fake.

On to the review. The "INSALATA CAPRESE" is great, big enough to almost be a meal for those small eaters. Use their table bread to make a sandwich with it and you're done! But to us it made for a great antipasto. Then came the primi, we ordered their "SPAGHETTI AGLIO E OLIO". Delicious! If you love garlic and some red pepper spice, then this simple dish is for you! For our secondi we ordered the "CHICKEN PAILLARD". The grilled chicken sounded good on paper, but it was hardy seasoned which made for some bland ass chicken. As our contorni we ordered, what else? Patate alla Toscana of course! A heaping pile of fries (it better have been for the price) but it turned out to be a bigger treat for the eyes than it was for our mouth. The fries were SALTY. way too much salt. Hell, maybe it was the chef back there whose hand slipped, but for the both of us, way too salty. If it had not been for that, then yes, I think I would had to agree that they're the best. They cook them with rosemary, basil, and parsley, then toss them with dried herbs afterwards which is an amazing change of pace from your everyday burger joint fries, but guys, lay off the salt man! Over all, a rather indifferent experience. I would rather go to oggi cafe by mall of the americas than come back to this place, but hey, thats just my opinion.
