Happy National Macaroni-n-Cheese Day! Though the history on this day is vague, I certainly have no problem celebrating! I thought I would share a few of our favorites around KC- these are definitely not your run of the mill, blue-box on the side variety. These can be savored and shared any day of the year. Enjoy!

Rye’s Mac & Cheese with Crispy Bacon– WITH BACON, need I say more? Great with Rye’s famous fried chicken.

Louie’s Wine Dive’s Lobster & Shrimp Macaroni– made with penne and Maine lobster, Gulf shrimp and a garlic cream sauce, seafood lovers will be sure to love!

Capital Grille’s Lobster Man ‘N’ Cheese– Touted on the “to-share” menu “as magnificent as it seems!” we know it will surely be a delight.

Westside Local’s Mac & Cheese– This girl’s favorite in KC! The Westside Mac & Cheese is on the entree menu at this farm-to-table yet urban restaurant. Made with cavatappi, white cheddar, Parmesan, herbs, garlic, Sasha’s baking co sourdough bread crumbs, one can also add roasted Brussels sprouts, asparagus,  house-made lamb chorizo, salmon or chicken! Portioned as an entree, it can still be shared!

Cafe Trio’s Mac Daddy– A delicious creamy mac-n-cheese with bacon, scallions, bell pepper, cherry tomato, Bel Paese and Romano cheese. Get a free Mac Daddy side to share with the purchase of two lunch or dinner entrees on July 14th to celebrate the day!

We guarantee you will enjoy these grown-up versions of the favorite childhood classic!
