I hadn't been to Stan's (Atlantic Ave.) in a while, so this may not exactly be breaking news, but it was news to me: Stan's can deep fry now!
The previous times I had had lunch there, I noticed that they did not have french fries, beignets or any other deep-fried items. I guess they didn't have the right equipment. Anyway, I asked the waitress about beignets at that time, and she said, "I know, I've been telling the boss to serve them."
Just had lunch there again today. My shrimp po'boy sandwich came with excellent deep-fried potato cubes. (I'm not sure what to call them. Not exactly french fries. They were chubby one-inch cubes, cooked for a long time until they were very brown and crispy.) And of course I had to have beignets with my chicory au lait! Truly wonderful. I definitely recommend this place.
If I die of a heart attack, at least I'll die happy.
