The concept is simple. You start with your basic mac and cheese, which comes in at at $3.95, and you build. For a buck each they’ve got more than a dozen cheeses, and 50 cents each gets you “add ins” ranging from artichokes to caramelized onions to scallions. “Proteins” are more expensive (particularly if you want your mac and cheese with Maine lobster.)
And if all that sounds like too much thinking, you can eschew build-your-own for the regular menu, which includes dishes such as Chef Michael’s Famous Lobster Mac. That’s lobster, Muenster and Gruyere cheeses, scallions, a sauce of the chef’s devising and – lest you think this is all getting too fancy – goldfish. Yeah, as in the little fish-shaped crackers.
Other dishes include the Cuban Sandwich, Philly Cheese Steak and Bacon Cheeseburger. In all cases, the main ingredients from those dishes get chucked into the mac and cheese.
