Why splurge on steak frites? At Lucques, whether you order it at lunch ($19) or off the late-night bar menu ($16), it’s superb, says David Kahn. It trumps the dish at most steakhouses, seconds petecfoodie.

Fraîche makes awesome steak frites, although it goes a few bucks over the $20 bar, says JackonCrack.

And at Darren’s in Manhattan Beach, steak frites is the star of the bar menu and costs just $15.
