The Kitchen Sink
(275 Union Boulevard; 314-261-4455)

The Kitchen Sink is preparing to move to a new location this fall, boasting big expansion plans and likewise an expanded menu with appetizers, more entrees and sandwiches. But let's take moment to focus on those fries -- Creole sweet potato might be the best way to describe them, though delicious works well also. Sweet and buttery with brown sugar and covered in marshmallow, it feels like you've started desert...and it feels good.

       Smothered fries at The Shaved Duck

The Shaved Duck
(2900 Virginia Avenue; 314-776-1407)

This Tower Grove East gastropub features rustic American cuisine, including several types of chili, tender and tasty smoked meats like the baby-back ribs and St. Louis-cut spare ribs, pulled pork and chicken. That's a lot of meat -- why not add a side dish? How about one that includes more meat? Like pulled rib meat layered over hand-cut fries that just so happen to be smothered in cheese sauce made in-house. You might want to skip the entree and just go with the fries.

The Crow's Nest
(7336 Manchester Road; 314-781-0989)

Here's what you get when you order the Truffle Frites: thick waffle fries, dill truffle gravy, garnished with bacon and green onion. Pretty much sells itself, what with the truffle gravy and bacon. Add to that the 1980s punk décor and let the sublime decadence wash over you.
