Kids will think they’ve died and gone to food heaven at S’Mac, which elevates a childhood staple to the gourmet level. There are a dozen varieties of mac to choose from, like the Cheeseburger, with ground beef and burger toppings. The “nosh” size is perfect for kiddie appetites; order the “mongo” and enjoy leftovers tomorrow (and the next day). Any variety on the lengthy menu here, from the textbook all-American to the Spanish-accented La Mancha (Manchego cheese, fennel and onion), can be made gluten-free or reduced-lactose.
