There’s nothing quite like tucking into a mouthwatering plate of mac and cheese this time of year to make us forget any of those so-called resolutions made just a few short weeks ago. Luckily, these five DC spots know how to give this dish—and tastebuds across the city—the justice it deserves.
A masterful blend of Gouda, yellow cheddar, white cheddar, Gruyère, Grana Padano, and muenster, this hearty mac and cheese bowl from Founding Farmers is textured with breadcrumbs and topped off with an actual lobster tail. 1924 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, 202-822-8783
