The mac & cheese is amazing - really, truly the best I've ever had. I always eat too much and regret it afterwards but then I want to go again on my next visit to NYC! This location is really small so be prepared to wait and fight for a table. But I think it is worth it!

Don't be put off by the scruffy appearance of this place. The food was great value, quick and delicious. I had regular American mac and cheese (gluten free ) and it tasted exactly as it should, gloopy and extremely cheesy.

This cute, super-casual neighborhood place's Four Cheese Mac and Cheese ranked #1 out of the 7 places I visited on my recent personal "Tour de Mac-et-Fromage." The menu's variety of mac and cheese skillet sizes and ingredient combinations is mind-expanding. I always order a classic version, so the Four Cheese had my name on it. I opted for the Nosh...

Myself and my wife searched East Village for this place after talking to someone in Harlem about my love for Macaroni cheese. We got lost, caught the wrong train and then finally found it a few hours later. 100% worth it, takeaway mac n' cheese abundant in flavour. Found a park in East Village, got asked by five people where... More

We good this pan full of macaroni and cheese years ago. It's got such good food to be such a tiny place. I wish I could go back again.

I'm a huge Mac and cheese lover, and this place does not disappoint! It's so cute and tiny- a little hole in the wall, but really fun. There are lots of great add in options and soda choices. It's made to order so be prepared to wait for the goodness that is to come. Made in your own personal pan,... More

If you like Mac N Cheese you will like S'Mac. They have various combinations/varieties of Mac N Cheese. We had the vegetarian versions and they were very good For people who do not like much cheese can ask them to go easy on the cheese. It is heavy so sharing and ordering variety is way to go

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
