Looking for quality comfort food at one in the morning? Macbar, the new Soho spot for the old mac & cheese classic, is officially open. The macaroni shaped restaurant is located next to Delicatessen and owned by the same guys. Macbar’s menu includes 12 different kinds of mac & cheese, ranging from classic to not so classic.
The Mac Lobsta is made up of fresh lobster, cognac, tarragon and mascarpone while the Mac Quack includes duck confit, fontina, caramelized onion and herbs. Other flavors include beef stroganoff, Mayan chipotle, and carbonara. There’s also a condiment bar so you can personalize your dish as you please with extra breadcrumbs, bacon, or buttermilk.
A small classic mac goes for $6 while a large lobster mac will set you back $18. Early reviews say the food is great (fans of the East Village S’mac should check it and compare). The only downside to the new bright yellow space is the lack of seating- only eight to be exact. Macbar is open from 11am – 11pm on weekdays and until 2am weekends.
