After seeing Macbar featured on an episode of Food Paradise, I needed to eat there, at whatever cost! When my husband surprised me with a stay two miles away, I insisted on walking there for lunch. While the long walk allowed for us to see...More

I have loved mac and cheese since before I could remember. The menu options are vast. Between my brothers and I we tried the lobster, mushroom and cheeseburger mac. All were delicious. The sizes are very fair given the price. The location itself is very...More

We're visiting from UK and wanted somewhere quick and easy for dinner. This ticked the boxes. A tiny place, best for takeout really, but the 3 of us squeezed around a small table. The pasta was tasty and made with a proper cheese sauce, not...More

I love a good mac & cheese and have been to some of the other mac joints around NYC, and was excited to try this one. First, I found the portion sizes to be pretty small compared to the price. The food was good, but...More

The most disrespectful place ever! I waited almost 1 hour for a simple mac & cheese. I would never recommend this place.

Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita
maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant
retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for
“North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to
be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighbourhood is
popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of
the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry,
Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping,
