Mac & Cheesy Mac & Cheese in Brooklyn!

l (1)

One of the greatest things about living in NYC is the outrageous abundance of mouth watering places to eat across all five boroughs. One of the hottest right now for the foodie scene has to be the borough of my birth – Brooklyn USA! Easy to get to from Manhattan by subway. So many things to see and do. So many places to drink and eat!

Here is another one for The Gluttony Files


How do I even begin to describe probably some of the greatest mac & cheese I have ever eaten? I mean, this stuff was devastating and blew my mind. I dream about it. I have cold sweats like an addict that can’t get his fix as it’s been too long now since my last hit of gooey goodness. Just inject that fatty cheesiness right into my veins!

If there is one thing that DuMont does exceptionally well, it definitely is their mac & cheese. Thick soft pasta shells covered by layers of mouth watering different cheeses, pieces of thick bacon mixed in, and a crust that is crisp and browned on the outside with real breadcrumbs. Wow – that crust is the stuff of mac & cheese legend, and it’s the kind of thing that wars are fought over. I still stare at the picture I took of it. They give you so much on the plate it begs you to share, but I was having none of that! Yes, I am disturbed, I know, but I just can’t help myself. DuMont has ruined me for mac & cheese at any other place I go the rest of my life. The after effects were a food coma like non other.

I guess our group of four were extremely lucky the night we came here after an evening drinking at nearby Barcade. Totally ravenous after a few hours of craft beer and video games we used the handy dandy Yelp ap and saw the glowing reviews of this spot and decided to give it a whirl. As I walked in to put my name on the waiting list I was taken aback at how small the place looked. Little did I know that the front room with a bar and a few tables are just a ruse, as a wonderful dining area awaits in the back. After only about 15 minutes we were called in and led speakeasy-like through dimly lit corridors to a backyard patio garden area that is terrifically decorated and featured heat lamps all around. You feel as if you have left NY and are on vacation when sitting back here it is so nice and countryside-like.

The service was attentive and pleasant enough and our food came out pretty quickly. The menu, though not huge, was diverse enough to please most palates with an eclectic selection of starters and main plates, plus a decent selection of beer, wine, cocktails, and sodas. If in the area it is definitely worth a visit if just for the amazing mac & cheese. If you are lactose intolerant it is worth the pain. Bring those Lactaid pills and down them!

ooOh yes, I will most assuredly come back. I need my fix soon. This will be a cheat meal for me as I am in diet mode now. Problem is one of these will most as assuredly wipe out an ab or two! Hell, what is an extra hour or two on the treadmill anyway, along with 1,000 crunches!

    Definitely worth running a 10k for a bowl of that mac ‘n cheese.

    Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

  8. Mac and cheese, a fave of my son. Or cheesy carbs in general. 🙂 When he is at Panera, he will actually order mac and cheese in a bread bowl. Of course, he’s got the speedy, metabolism of youth!

    I saw a special on the Travel Channel that talked up a place called S’mac, another Mac & Cheese hot spot in NYC. Have you eaten there before, and if so how does DuMont stack up against it?

      Hello Nicole!

      Thanks for dropping by my blog! I have been to both, and while I like S’Mac because of the different varieties they offer I still prefer DuMont only because I think theirs has a richer flavor to it. Both are worth a visit as you can’t go wrong! Plus, DuMont is a much nicer place to dine at. S’Mac is smaller and more no-frills when it comes to decor. These are just my opinions but I hope it helps!

    I love Mac & Cheese. Who ever thought Chefs could get so inventive with Mac & Cheese. Adding chicken, bacon, veggies, and everything else under the sun!
