Off Manhattan Poutine

Here's what a site called Off Manhattan had to say about poutine:
Poutine—a greasy bechamel of fries slathered in gravy and cheese curds—is about as easy for an American to dismiss as curling or ice hockey. It’s just the type of handiwork we’d expect of the country that took our ham and called it their bacon.
Except that they were right: Canadian bacon does sound way cooler than ham; hockey is like a bloodier, faster soccer; and poutine? Well, it sort of tastes like Thanksgiving and the Fourth of July decided to throw a joint party in your mouth. Which is convenient, because poutine goes really well with beer.

Turns out there are a smattering of places in and around New York that offer this unofficial national dish of our neighbor to the north. Here’s a list of four delicious Canadian spots to whet your poutine appetite.
