Mina, the European small-plates vendor at east side food hall Crossroads Collective, is switching its menu to all things potato. Or almost all things.

Starting Thursday, Mina will be a frites bar, the food hall announced Wednesday.

The menu items still will have a global focus; the fries will have toppings such as Italy's anchovy-garlic-olive oil blend bagna cauda ($8) and Germany's currywurst ($12), as well as American-style ketchup and salt ($4) and Mediterranean-style aioli, lemon, parsley and garlic ($7). Other toppings include a cheese blend ($7) and Mina's house seasoned salt and toum, the Lebanese garlic sauce ($5).

Customers can order a flight ($20) to try some of each. Mina also will have seasonal specials. 

“So many cultures have their own take on the simple dish of fried potatoes,” said Patrice Gentile, who owns Mina with her husband, Ryan Hoffman

RELATED:Milwaukee food halls survive even as the pandemic forces restaurants to close. And more food halls are coming.

Popular dishes from the previous menu, however, still will be available — such as polenta, croquettes, olives, house-made Italian sodas and changing versions of bocadillo, the Spanish sandwich.

Mina will continue its themed pop-up dinners, which take place in the speakeasy at Crossroads Collective, 2238 N. Farwell Ave.
