Fusilli pasta with fontina, gruyere, parmesan, and Ludlow cheese. Natalie Skilliter, Corner Kitchen's GM, said it's the béchamel cheese that gives the dish its extra creaminess and sets it apart. And while we're at it, everything else is pretty fantastic too––ambience, cocktails, service. (Price: $7/$14)
1035 S Main St., Dayton
Baked cavatappi, smoked gouda, & cheddar with BBQ breadcrumbs. For some extra protein, I added the herb-roasted chicken, but you could add bacon and bleu cheese or shrimp. I also enjoyed my Napoleon Armeé, a Berliner Weiss. If you like beer, be sure to try a pint of one their craft brews. (Price: $9)
106 E Main St., Tipp City
Traditional, down-home mac and cheese made with penne pasta and cheddar cheese. For a variation of the classic, Harrison's has a dish called City Mac and Cheese with spinach, chopped tomatoes, onion, and red pepper––with options to add sausage or chicken. (Price: $3.99/$13.99)
Whether you want to go vegetarian or omnivore, there are a lot of great options. Where's your favorite place in Dayton for mac and cheese?
