This carb partnership between an East Village mac n’ cheese maven and Murray Hill stop for pizza-by-the-inch (you pay by weight) works deliciously and playfully. You can skip Kraft at home; here mac and cheese arrives bubbling in a cast-iron skillet with robust mix-ins, from ground beef and andouille sausage to shitake mushrooms, and made with a choice of over a dozen cheeses, including brie and manchego. Rectangular, thin-crust pizzas serve as crisp complements to their gooey cousins, with fresh toppings like grilled chicken and roast garlic, or pepperoni with chiles in oil and a sprinkling of breadcrumbs. The space is part romper room, part classy cafe: Cherry-red walls offset by black-and-white photos of elegant, bare trees; springy banquettes; sleek plastic-and-chrome chairs; and for the stroller brigade, a nook where to park the wheels. Just beware of starch attack: If you’re seriously eyeing the thick brownies for dessert, a strong pinch and smack might be in order.Recommended Dishes
