    Worth the hassle

    To eat at S'Mac you will probably stand in line for 10-15 minutes only to then wait for a table to open up and fight of 5-6 other people also waiting for a table. But the food itself is fantastic and I consider it worth the hassle. Only advice is to remember that even though its on the menu, not every food makes sense inside Mac and Cheese (Buffalo Chicken?) - Keep it simple for the best results.

    Deeeeeeeelicious!

    I'm not quite sure why all you people below are complaining. I've been there several times, and I'm dying to go back!! The Mediterranean (goat cheese, kalamata olives, spinach, and garlic) and Parisienne (brie, figs, mushrooms, rosemary) combos are phenomenal! Plus I love that they have Fizzy Lizzys!

    Decent food

    Food is decent. Not the best, but still good and great for nights where you just don't feel like cooking. I live near by and get take out frequently. Over the past year I have noticed a decline in the service.

    The Emperor Has No Clothes On

    After reading all the hype for so long a group of 6 of us decided to finally try S'mac. We tried the Buffalo Chicken, Garden Veg, the multiple cheese thing and also 3 other dishes with the choices they offer. If this place isn't the finest example of the Emperor not wearing clothes I don't know what is. Every dish was ridiculously low on any quality ingredients but featured tons of breadcrumbs and overly burnt cheeses (and I'm not talking crisp, it was burned!). The cheese quality, even the brie they use, is of the lowest quality imaginable...had a very gummy consistency and weird aftertaste. The only thing we could all agree upon is that this place is perfect for those with little money for real food and even less taste when it comes to food. The veggie mac didn't even have vegetables! The Buffalo Chicken was full of this horrendous sauce and almost no chicken. It would have been laughable until we got our total.....6 nosh-sized (and I mean smalllll) dishes and our beverages totalled almost $80 bucks and not one of us finished the food because we just couldn't. When the server asked us if we liked our dishes we basically let him know we weren't thrilled and he gave us a 'what do you know?' sort of response. Hey, we're NYers...we know you PAID for all the press, bigshot! So we felt S'mac-ed in the wallet and we couldn't S'mac the taste from our mouths from this meal because of the bad aftertaste it left....literally....for all of us.

    Great mac and cheese, so-so atmostphere

    If you're lucky enough to get a seat in this place, you've struck gold! The mac and cheese is fantastic! I've had the Buffalo Chicken several times in the small size and it's fantastic every time. Although the Nosh size looks small, it fills you up becuase the dishes are kind of heavy and carb-loaded. But it's a fantastic alternative to something else low-priced. I highly recommend it for a quick, no thrills meal.

    Am I the only one...

    ...who was disappointed? I was so looking forward to eating here, being a mac n cheese lover since childhood, and hearing such good things about this place. After finally getting around to trying it, my initial reaction was... EH. It's good, don't get me wrong, but it's just not... wow. I got the Garden Lite, and the Buffalo Chicken. Both were creamy, a little too heavy, even. The Buffalo was highly sauced, making it pretty salty, and the veggies in my garden lite were almost nonexistent! All in all, I have to say the experience is mediocre at best.

    Ideas for your next cooking attempt :)

    Actually attempting to find another restaurant (further down the block it turned out), I wandered across this place and, being very hungry and having heard good things about it, decided to give it a go. The space is small but nice enough, and on this weekday evening was pretty empty save for off-work staff members lolling around, and people coming in and out to get take out. The atmosphere is very dark but with attempts to lighten it with mac n' cheese hued furniture and lights (read yellow and orange) of a very 'modern' look, and an oldies station on the radio that seemed obsessed with beach boys.... Anyways. Meals come in 4 different sizes, Nosh, the medium whose name I forgot, and the Mongo. For $4-6, the Nosh is a bit small imho, but the preparation and ingredients are pretty neat....well, they're not things I usually bother with in my kitchen anyways. I decided on the 4 cheese, though the Parisian and the la Mancha sounded especially tasty. Indeed, this place would be great to go once and then use the ideas for your own recipes back home. I esp liked that they added bread crumbs at your ok, one of my favorite additions to mac n' cheese. The meals, if you're dining in as I was, are brought out to you once they are prepared, the mac atop a sizzling platter nestled in a wooden tray to protect you and the table. This means that the cheese has a nice crisp quality on the edges (which I really like anyways), and that it stays warm for a long while. Taste was very good, akin to something I have paid much more for in 'gourmet' establishments. Was it worth the money overall? Perhaps not. However, considering that it is the same size really as the mac at other places (Au Bon Pain for instance), has lots of extra nifty ingredients if you want, is served on the hot plates, and isn't needing to be made in your own kitchen....well, I suppose it's not so bad a deal really after all. Oh, service. Guys are very polite if not exactly friendly. Service is efficient, place is clean. Indeed, one guy came out and began sweeping up where someone had [drop]ped their take out meal while I was there. Overall, good place for a lunch, and especially good if you are in NYC with a bunch of really picky eaters who can get boring mac and cheese while you try something more interesting.
