It’s Burger Week at Eater Detroit, but what would a burger be without french fries? Thin, thick, wedged, or waffled, they’re irresistible. There are infinite ways to change up the humble french fry, whether they come with or without a burger. Many of Detroit’s favorite chefs have put their own spin on the dish, and despite their differences, each version has three things in common: the potatoes are fried, salted, and utterly delicious.
1 Lafayette Coney Island: Classic
2 Republic: Beef Tallow Fries
3 Gold Cash Gold Detroit: Frites with Pickle Juice Mayo
4 Green Dot Stables: Truffle and Herb Fries
5 The Brooklyn Street Local: Poutine
6 Hopcat – Detroit: Crack Fries
7 Mercury Burger Bar: Garlic Fries
8 La Feria Detroit Spanish Tapas: Patatas Bravas
9 Wright & Company: Loaded Potato Chips
10 Cornerstone Barrel House: Fingerling Frites

The Wright-Kay Building [home of Wright & Company] is back. Concealed by a plywood barricade during its months-long construction process, the restored ground floor has been revealed days before its debut as John Varvatos. The new look is a huge upgrade for the 124-year-old building. Installed decades ago, the previous granite facade hid the original cast iron frame like a bulky set of sweatpants. John Varvatos doesn’t open to the public ’til Friday, but let’s hope Bedrock Real Estate Services worked similar magic on the interior.
