Best Mac' n Cheese?

Looking for suggestions.

  1. Artisanal Fromagerie & Bistro - a playground for fans of cheese, with Mac' n Cheese to die for

    1. Tons of recent threads on this topic ... a quick search should turn them up.

      1. IMHO the best Mac & Cheese is made by following the recipe in Kitchen Primer by Craig Clairborne, Portland House pub, 1969 pages 75-76

        1. I still think the best I've had in Manhattan is at Eatery. I wouldn't go there for much else (their sister restaurant Whym is much better), but for macaroni and cheese, Eatery's got my vote. S'mac is fine, but nothing outstanding.



          1. Cafeteria on West 17th St. and 7th Ave.

            The mac and cheese is all you see at every table at this 24 hour eatery - when you ask for it with the works it comes with truffle oil and panncetta. the cheese is perfectly crusty against the sides of the baking dish and the mixture of cheeses in the dish are robustly flavored and perfectly melted.

              I just had the mac and cheese and cafeteria the other day and it's pretty darn good.
              However, I agree w/ Nosher. Eatery's mac and cheese is even better! I remember them serving crispy onion shreds on top.

                Is this the same Cafeteria as on the UWS?
