S’Mac in New York’s East Village

S’Mac, aka Sarita’s Macaroni and Cheese (*197 1st Avenue, East Village), was one of the first places I put on my New York must-visit list. I love mac & cheese, and who doesn’t?

This tiny joint has over ten pre-set mac & cheese creations to choose from, or you can create your own. And yes, there are Vegan options too.

It was a little overwhelming, so I went the lazy man route, the sampler. It includes:

  • Parisienne – Creamy  Brie, Roasted Figs, Roasted Shiitake Mushrooms & Fresh Rosemary
  • Napoletana – Fresh Mozzarella, Roasted Tomatoes, Roasted Garlic, and Fresh Basil.
  • All American – American & Cheddar Cheeses
  • CheeseburgerCheddar and American Cheeses with seasoned Ground Beef.
  • 4 Cheese – Cheddar, Muenster, Gruyere, and a touch of Pecorino.
  • Cajun – Cheddar & Pepper Jack Cheeses, Andouille Sausage, Green Pepper, Onions, Celery, Garlic, and Cajun Seasoning.
  • AlpineGruyere with Slab Bacon.
  • La ManchaManchego Cheese with Fresh Fennel and Onions.

They were all as good as they sound, but these two were just a little better than the rest; The Cajun mac with the andouille sausage and the alpine with gruyere (one of my favorite kinds of cheese) were standouts.

The Cheeseburger mac could easily be called a meatloaf mac & cheese and was a close third. But, I don’t think you could go wrong with any of them.
