5. Aspen’s famous truffle fries at MC Kitchen
Located in the Design District, MC Kitchen may be known for its elevated, modern take on Italian fare by chef Dena Marino, but don’t sleep on those Aspen truffle fries ($14), served with brown truffle gravy. A celebrated recipe Marino brought from her time in Aspen, it is indeed worthy of sharing — but you won’t. It’s fine to pair the fries with delightful soups, pastas, or panini. Just be sure to leave some room for Italian desserts like the roasted green apple crostata ($14), with Point Reyes blue cheese, candied pecans, and caramel gelato.

4. Disco fries at the Local Craft Food & Drink
The late-night crowd's favorite item is the dish dubbed "disco fries" ($9) at the Local Craft Food & Drink in Coral Gables. Here, a bowl of fries comes with Miami Smokers’ bacon gravy and house-made American cheese whiz. Skip the ketchup. Don’t make your own pink sauce. Everything you need can be found in that single disco-loving bowl. It’s best enjoyed with one (or two) of the Local’s many domestic and imported craft brews.

Let your nose guide you to Blue Collar, which keeps it casual with a coveted menu of comfort-food faves like burgers, ribs, jambalaya, and, of course, fries. Freshly cut, perfectly crisp, and lightly salted — there's nothing more to 'em, and that's what makes these bad boys soar. Waffle-cut sweet potato fries are also available.
