I Heart Mac & Cheese, and Short Ribs, and Crispy Chicken….
A Best of Both Worlds sandwich at I Heart Mac & Cheese, which just began franchising.
We’re suckers for good food photos, so our thanks goes to I Heart Mac & Cheese, a Boca Raton, Florida-based brand that just launched a national franchise program and has many beautiful photos plus a dauntingly long menu.
They call it a fast-casual, build-your-own mac and cheese restaurant, specializing in mac and cheese bowls and grilled cheese sandwiches.
Diners choose from a variety of pasta or bread, along with seven different types of cheese, vegetables and, confusingly enough for a mac and cheese bar, seven additional proteins—meatballs, bacon, ground beef, short ribs and crispy chicken.
You could also get loaded baked tater tots, The Cuban with mojo marinated pulled pork, ham, Gruyere cheese and dill pickles; or The Best of Both Worlds, a backed mac and cheese sandwich with slow-cooked short rib, white cheddar cheese and American cheese finished with BBQ sauce.
Seems to us like a concept whose menu is destined to contract over time, or maybe whose name is destined to grow: I Heart Mac & Cheese, and Short Ribs, and Crispy Chicken, and meatballs…But meanwhile, folks in Florida and in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, its first stepout location, can get an abundance of good-looking food.
