      My new fave is PINCH and S'MAC on Columbus near the Museum of Natural History. A dozen varieties of mac and cheese all served in cast iron skillets, terrific salads, and pizza by the inch. This place is a must for mac and cheese lovers. Recently I heard a six-year-old exclaim: "Mom, this is the best place ever. Can we eat here every day until I grow up?"

    2. If the weather is nice, go to Shake Shack in Madison Square Park. Great burgers and custard. My personal fave is the deep fried mushroom & cheese "burger". And it's an awesome location.
