Winter in Brooklyn: Mac n’ Cheese to Comfort You

You haven’t seen the sun in a week. You’re hungover all the time. It’s so cold in your apartment you haven’t been fully naked in days. These are sad times, friend, and you need a little comfort, in the form of food. In the form of mac n’ cheese.

DuMac n’ Cheese is simple and good: macaroni, gruyere and bacon baked together. Grab a growler of beer while you’re at it (pictured above). 314 Bedford Ave., Williamsburg

Black Mountain Wine House
adds wild mushrooms and truffle oil to the classic gruyere version for a burst of flavor.

Thistle Hill Tavern
samples old-country flavor using fontina, smoked provolone, grana padana, pecorino, and (AND!) pancetta in theirs.
441 Seventh Ave., Park Slope

is a good spot to wait out a blizzard, eating nothing but their Swiss Alps Mac & Cheese: bundnerkase cheese, onion and homemade apple sauce!
394 Broadway, Williamsburg

Brooklyn Star
uses Velveeta, so that’s kind of awesome.
