Maple sweet friesTavern in the Square
The fries: Crispy sweet potato fries served with a dijon maple sauce
My take: This sugary concotion might be a shock to the senses upon first bite, but they'd be undoubtedly easy to scarf down with a fall beer and some good friends. Plus, the syrupy topping makes them almost taste like breakfast food -- my favorite meal of the day.
