As a belated Valentine for spud lovers, the East Village’s popular potato-powered FryGuys re-opened yesterday Feb. 15, after a month-long renovation. The retooled and refurbished FryGuys — a new plush velvet banquette increases seating from 14 to 20-plus — offers an expanded menu, including sandwiches and a rotating roster of local beers on draft and in bottles or cans.

New options for FryGuys’ signature “loaded fries” convert the generous servings of hand- cut, twice-cooked French or curly fries into a meal. Consider the Buffalo Chicken variant in which the fries are partnered with fried chicken, Buffalo sauce, and blue cheese. Or opt for Mac & Cheese, sauced with five cheeses, including mozzarella, provolone, cheddar and Velveeta. Some of the nine loaded fries options are now are available in a ”bucket of fries” size that feeds at least three.

Among the new sandwich offerings are The Fry Guy — slow-roasted pork, smoky BBQ sauce, and coleslaw.

FryGuys’s reopening also signals the premiere of an expanded shake program that features the likes of: Cookies n’ Crème (cookies and cream ice cream with whipped cream and chocolate sauce) and BamBam (Fruity Pebbles, vanilla ice cream, and berry drizzle).

FryGuys is open from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday and Monday, till 2.a.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and till 4 a.m. on weekends (for late-night/early morning fry cravings).

FryGuys, 150 East 2nd Street, New York.
