Best Fries 

Westport Café and Bar

419 Westport Road | 816-931-4780

The menu of Aaron Confessori's Gallic-­inspired Westport Café and Bar features all of the good things found in a sexy Paris bistro: escargot, foie gras and steak frites. It also offers the best damn pommes frites in town. (Go ahead, call them french fries; here, they truly are.) Confessori's kitchen makes them in the classic style: "We slice the potatoes, then brine them overnight in a salty water bath, then blanche them at 160 degrees so the potatoes are cooked inside and slightly wilted," he says. "Then, when someone orders them, we flash-fry them in hot peanut oil and dust them with sea salt." The spuds don't come out with fancy sauces, just a house-made mayo and Heinz ketchup. "Is there any better ketchup?" Confessori says. Maybe, but that's hardly the point. These fries are beautiful naked.
