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
