Belgian fries are traditionally a side dish, but not at Frjtz. Here, hand-cut, twice-fried pomme frites are a main event, served alongside 20-plus inventive dipping sauces, such as balsamic mayo and habanero-cranberry ketchup. But Frjtz's culinary mastermind, Santiago Rodriguez, doesn't merely craft fries and sauces. His extensive menu encompasses everything from breaded Belgian mussels served by the pound to burgers crowned with lemon-saffron aioli.
On the sweeter side, he specializes in two of Belgian's most lauded desserts: crepes and waffles. The former he fills with fixings such as strawberries and wild-berry coulis, while atop the latter he piles caramelized pears and toasted almonds. There are even savory riffs on each, such as waffles crowned with crab cakes and hollandaise, which, if doused in milk, becomes a complete breakfast. Along with wine and cocktails, Santiago complements his hearty feasts with four Belgian beers on tap, plus many more by the bottle.
