I first learned of S’Mac back in June during my visit to Bridge Cafe.
Later in June I went to Growler’s outside of St Louis, and found some pretty darn good mac and cheese there.
They advertise “New York’s best Macarroni and Cheese”. I haven’t had mac & cheese elsewhere in the city, but if someone else is going to top them, they’ll need to go a long way to do it.
My dad had the Major Munch Cheeseburger mac. I went for the Major Munch Buffalo Chicken. I probably should’ve gone for the Nosh size instead, but I didn’t.
345 E 12th St is cramped, colored like it’s the inside of a macarroni, and doesn’t do refills on drinks (they server cans and bottles only). But they live up to their promoted reputation of having awesome mac & cheese.
We arrived with the joint only a third full. By the time they brought our fresh-baked concoctions to us in personal cast iron pans, every table was full, and the line of folks waiting to get their own pan was 12 deep – which is quite an accomplishment in such a tiny space! And on top of this, it was Halloween! Who goes out to eat on Halloween? (OK, other than the obvious, “I do”.)
I was still a little full from our excursion to Bridge Cafe for lunch, so ended up getting the rest of my mac & cheese to go.
If you’re looking for something sit-down and relaxing, S’Mac is not for you.
If you want great food, fantastic prices (especially for NYC), and fast service – then go S’mac yourself.

At least now I know where to take Samantha when we finally get her up to NYC…
(damn it, now I’m going to have to make mac and cheese this weekend…)
Nothing wrong with mac & cheese! I love the stuff!
Ah, so that’s the plan… leave HP to open W’Mac – the Durham version of S’Mac.
w’mac? … what’s the ‘w’ for?
I get it!
