Whether or not you’re looking for a great beer bar, it’s still worth stopping at Local for the mac and cheese “bar.” Spiral noodles topped with Gruyère cheese and truffle oil are baked in a mini cast-iron skillet. It's delicious on its own, but you can (and will want to) choose add-ins: lobster, chorizo, bacon, short ribs, tasso, and/or blue cheese.

Offering Southern comfort food staples, like smoked pork chops and fried catfish, it’s no surprise Soul Fish has a creamy, classic macaroni on its menu. For the choose-three vegetable plate, some opt for triple mac. (You know who you are! No worries, we aren’t judging you.) And yes, we do consider mac and cheese a vegetable here in the South.
