Jus Mac in the Heights
Much anticipated Jus Mac opens second week of October and with much excitement by Heights residents already filling this macaroni & cheese serving restaurant to capacity. Yes, this restaurant only serves macaroni & cheese dishes with the exception of desserts and a few salads.
The decor is nice, clean, modern, trendy and loud. It's a fairly small space, so between the tv and people it's pretty noisy. While we wait for our food, it goes from long line to small line to long line and over. There's a lot of fanfare, but we order our food and it's not really worth all the hype, in my opinion.
We got the Rustic (basil, garlic, roasted tomatoes, topped with parm) and the Popeye (spinach, onions, mushrooms, parm), which was suggested. We both liked the Rustic over the Popeye, but even then the Rustic wasn't exactly the best macaroni & cheese dish I've ever had. I think if you get over the fact that you're eating a large side dish for your main meal, maybe you'd have a better experience. I wasn't really that impressed by the food. I may go again, they say the mac burger, taco-mexi and chili are popular and really good. Maybe next time.
