‘375 Degrees’ Readies Ludlow Street for French Fries with Neon Signage

It’s getting cold, but not at 122-124 Ludlow Street, where the temperature is rising.
Eight months ago, we first brought word of another single-item, fast-casual eatery at 122-124 Ludlow Street. That of specialty fries shop 375 Degrees (stylized 375°), a simple snack joint where French fries are the main order of business.
Its debut was first teased for this past spring, a launch that never materialized. In fact, given the state of the storefront (and no response from ownership), we nearly figured it for dead. Until last week. That’s when this old-school neon display was installed above the entrance.
“Our goal is to make the perfect fries, and we’re going the extra mile to do that,” owner Stephane Lemagnen told us last March. “The thrice-cooked french fries will be served in different sized cones with a dozen original sauces for the customers to pick from.” The menu will also “explore globally-inspired toppings” such as Kimchi and Fried Egg, Banh Mi, Carne Asada or Pastrami and Sauerkraut.
There will be limited seating for customers to dine, mostly countertops with cone holders. They will reportedly seek beer-wine privileges sometime in the near future.
