Its French fries set a Guinness World Record and many people want to know the reason.
If you are a New Yorker, you are living in the best dining destination in the world. Eating out is practically a sport in this beautiful and incredible city. You can find anything at reasonable prices, and if you want to spend hundreds of dollars, then restaurants like Serendipity3 are perfect for you.
New York is home to some of the most delicious and truly iconic foods. I know that COVID-19 has disrupted and even shut down some of the finest establishments of the city. Still, you can have a good dining experience. With creative outdoor options, takeaway facilities, and limited capacity indoor dining, New York City can offer a lot of things to us.
Serendipity3 in New York City
Serendipity3 was reopened last Friday after a long time. It has become the most renowned Upper East Side restaurant and has broken its tenth Guinness World Record. This time, the restaurant is being talked about due to its expensive French fries. The cost of the French fries is $200. If you are shocked, please don’t be because there is a special reason for charging this much.
The award-winning fries arrived just in time for July 13th’s National French Fry Day and have been named Creme de la Creme Pommes Frites. “I’m kind of speechless, overwhelmed and elated, excited — just one of the most surreal experiences I’ve ever had,” corporate executive chef Frederick Schoen-Kiewert said. “After reopening, we wanted to make as much noise as we can. We thought it was the perfect timing to really do something fun and really prove that New York is back."
On Monday, a ceremony was held at the restaurant to celebrate the new world record. “Today it is my pleasure to present you with the Guinness World Record title for the most expensive French fries to Serendipity3 for your Creme de la Creme Pommes Frites,” adjudicator Kaitlin Vesper said. “Congratulations, you are now officially amazing.”
Pay $200 for Creme de la Creme Pommes Frites
According to Schoen-Kiewert, some of the best ingredients have been used to prepare these French fries. If you think that they contain traditional oil, potatoes, salt, and other ingredients, you are wrong. The restaurant is serving the fries with mornay sauce and cheese sauce. The upstate Chipperbeck potatoes have been used. These are first balanced in Dom Perignon Champagne and J. LeBlanc French Champagne Ardenne Vinegar and are then cooked in pure goose fat at 320˚F.
Once the fries have been cooked, they are seasoned with Guerande truffle salt and are then tossed in Urbani summer truffle oil and topped with shaved Crete Senesi Pecorino Tartufello. Next, the Creme de la Creme Pommes Frites are adorned with truffles and 23K gold.
Finally, the French fries are accompanied by a mornay sauce made with udder cream from A2 grass-fed Jersey cows, black truffle butter, and 3-month aged gruyere truffled Swiss raclette (at $24.99 per pound). They are served on a Baccarat crystal Arabesque plate, and the 23K edible gold dust will cost you $150 a gram.
Now you know why these French fries cost $200 and what makes them so special. If you don’t have a limited budget and want to try something great, I suggest you visit Serendipity3 this weekend.
