According to a recent scientific study by scientists about science, the only way to combat Chicago's current cold temperatures and the depression that comes with them is... mac & cheese! Especially if it's from one of these eight spots, which include everything from deep-fried lobster mac to mac & cheese-stuffed grilled cheeses.
It’s no secret that Barrelhouse’s craft cocktail list is among the best in the city, but it IS a secret that this Lincoln Ave watering hole's glorious, deep-fried lobster mac is up there, too. Each skewered block (there are six to an order) features a velvety interior packed with elbow macaroni, lobster béchamel, white cheddar, scallion, and red chile. Bonus: the side of spiced Louisiana remoulade is just the dipping sauce these bites demand.
