[Broken Oar's braised beef mac, topped with a brown gravy drizzle, is not your typical meaty adult mac and cheese.]
When you order a meaty adult mac and cheese, you usually end up with a dish of mac and cheese with a clump of meat on top.
This dish, which came out at just the right level of warm from the oven, was not that at all. It might look like a regular-ish mac from the photo, but I sunk my fork in and found that this dish was majority meat, an excellent braised beef with what was described on the menu as brown gravy drizzle.
It was a hearty plate, and I knew eating half would be plenty to be filled up now and have a hearty plate waiting to re-heat for my next meal as well.
It was made with cavatappi pasta, a mix of American, cheddar and mozzarella cheeses with bread crumbles along with mushrooms and roasted red peppers.
A feast worth the trip. That lunch left both of us diners satisfied.
