Miso Lobster Macaroni & Cheese Where to get it: Kata Robata, 3600 Kirby
You may not think to order this classic comfort dish at one of the city's hottest Japanese restaurants, but Kata Robata's decadent, crustacean-loaded miso mac' is so good, you'll be sorry you didn't. A mix of miso, parmesan, gouda, and cheddar cheeses makes for an ultra creamy, ultra rich base with umami flavor; while a topping of buttery crisp panko adds some crunch. We suggest getting the $19 for the table so everyone can get a taste.
Short Rib Mac Where to get it: Brooklyn Athletic Club, 601 Richmond
Classic Amerian and cheddar mac' and cheese is made all the better with shreds of rich and beefy braised short rib and caramelized mushrooms and peppers. As if that's not enough, the miniature Le Creuset skillet of mac' ($9) gets a buttery, herbed and golden brown breadcrumb crust. Crack it open and enjoy the magic.
