  • Andrew H.The mac and cheese was good, not particularly multiorgasmic, as many commenters say. We sat at the bar. The tall bartender had a gentle contempt for the stupid which I appreciated. Will go back.

    33333 by Andrew H.


  • Meaghan C.Lobster Mac n cheese take home isn't as good. Lobster is overpoweringly fishy, not fresh? Sauce is watery & needs to be thickened once home-this could be due to condensation on to-go container.

    33333 by Meaghan C.


  • Meaghan C.Lobster Mac n cheese as a to-go dish needs some doctoring when you get home. I warmed mine up till cheese melted and mixed in a sprinkle of smoked paprika. Delish!

    33333 by Meaghan C.
