This past weekend, I went up to NYC to visit some friends and to attend an event for the 2009 Wine and Food Festival. Before hitting up the bars on Saturday night, my friends and I grabbed some dinner at S’MAC (stands for Sarita’s Mac and Cheese). There is a room for take-out and a room for dining in. We wanted to sit down but couldn’t due to the packed dining area.
Ever since I found out about this place, I’ve been dying to try it. Think about it. Mac and cheese is an amazing comfort food. A restaurant serving all different kinds of mac and cheese and allowing you to choose what kinds of cheese and mix-ins to put in! What a foodgasm!
Anyway, I got the Nosh size (the smallest) and my cheeses were gruyere and brie. The mix-in’s were andouille sausage, slab bacon, and shiitake mushrooms. There are so many choices for mix-in’s that I definitely woulda taken my time but my friends had ordered already and I was put on the spot. I don’t regret the choices I made though.
The mac and cheese looked great. It had a nice toasty, crisp top crust concealing creamy, delicious mac and cheese goodness underneath. Ahhh, I can’t wait till we meet again, S’MAC.
