Very little can augment a good French fry. Golden, hand-cut sticks of pillowy potato are a simple yet essential American food. But if you throw in a little pot of malt vinegar aioli, we’ll love you even more. That’s just what happens when we munch on fries at Nightingale. These rustic fries are evenly cooked, evenly salted, and will disappear before you can even order a second beer to wash it all down — but not before you’ve swiped up all the dipping sauce that comes alongside. It offers a tangy, creamy punch to balance out the earthy, salty crunch of the potatoes. Have them together as a happy hour treat with sparkling wine, or soak up your boozy overindulgence by grabbing an order as a late-night snack.
