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.
415 Union St., Carroll Gardens
piles on with five cheeses and isn’t shy with the lardons. 565 Vanderbilt Ave., Fort Greene
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
uses Velveeta, so that’s kind of awesome.
33 Havemeyer St., Williamsburg
