I Heart Mac n Cheese


Michael Blum's mac & cheese-focused fast-casual spot in Ft. Lauderdale is plating up gourmet takes on the iconic comfort food. Menu items include over-the-top creations like lobster, short rib, and truffle oil mac & cheeses, but the most enticing part of the counter-serve operation is the make-it-yourself option. Choose from over 30 toppings and cheeses (fontina, provolone, bacon, Philly cheesesteak, plus vegan and vegetarian options) and experience the most satisfying bowl of cheesy goodness you've ever tasted. So much more than a fast-food joint, I Heart Mac n Cheese has a rustic interior with wooden furniture and a chandelier made with vintage milk bottles.
