Rumors that avocados are over have been greatly exaggerated, and this all-avocado restaurant that serves avocado fries proves that your favorite fruit still reigns supreme in 2018. But, what are avocado french fries? While recipes for the dish have been floating around for a few years, they're not yet a staple on most restaurant menus. However, Avocado Appétit just opened in New York City, and everything on the menu is made with avocado, including the fries. Yes, please! If you're salivating, you're not alone. People on Twitter are in a hot debate over the debut of avocado fries, but the truth is in the taste test. And, those who have sampled the green fried treats are in love. I mean, if you and your bae love them so much that you use avocados to propose marriage, it's only natural that you'll add avocado fries to the dinner menu at your wedding.
Back off haters, the avocado is here to stay. Even professionals in the food industry are gaga over avocado fries, naturally. "People marvel at our avocado fries [served at Knife at The Highland Dallas], which are truly miraculous little greaseless, warm, creamy morsels served with a cooling but zesty chipotle mayonnaise," Top Chef alum John Tesar is quoted as saying in his new book Knife on the Bravo TV website. "The inspiration came just after I moved to Texas, from a booth frying half avocados at the Texas State Fair. As soon as I saw them, I said to myself, If I ever own a steakhouse, I will put avocado fries on the menu." As every restaurant should, obviously.
