BEST MACARONI AND CHEESE?
Who/Where in baltimore is the best place to get Macaroni and Cheese? Let me know
Have not had any memorable mac and cheeses in Baltimore.
For anyone interested in DC, here are my observations:
The Diner: made with gruyere, usually pretty dry, not one of my favorites.
Hank's Oyster Bar: made with gouda, runny, milky, oily bread crumbs on top, with a gummy mouth feel. At $5 a plate, I pass.
Horace & Dickies: runny again (I think they use too much butter), plain cheddar. Edible but unremarkable.
Georgia Browns: overly salty. Good texture and consistency, but not cheap.
Ooohs and Aaahs: getting better, but still hit-or-miss. I've had it perfectly rich and creamy; I've also had it dry and past its prime.
Levi's Port Cafe: personal gold standard: rich, creamy, a mix of cheeses (probably Velveeta or American with a blend of cheddar and swiss with eggs as a binding agent), high moisture content (probably milk), excellent mouth feel. A layer of crisp cheese on top for that all important creme brulee crunch. Bulletproof and consistent from meal to meal.

Clementine's on Harford Road. A massive meal in itself, chunks of tomato. About as far from Kraft's box mac as one can get.
