The Skinny: Chef Brian
Perrone has been making his sought-after mac ’n cheese since long before this
popular Southern-inspired Corktown joint opened. His secret weapon? “My version
uses a medium shell for the pasta, cheddar cheese, and a blend of spices that
give it a distinct flavor,” he says, adding, “the ratio of pasta to cheesiness
is really high.” The dish is by far the best-selling side on the menu. “The
stuff elicits all sorts of moans and sighs and gasps,” Perrone claims,
“followed closely by a request for the recipe.” —Emma Sloley
