View as Map

Growing old is mandatory, but outgrowing mac and cheese is optional and highly discouraged. While steakhouses don't serve microwaveable Kraft, they do have a few options to help fill that void.

There is some combination of cheese and carbs (and bacon, if so desired) that will satisfy even the pickiest eater, or at least make them nostalgic for the only worthy side dish at a grade school cafeteria.

Here are eleven mac and cheese in Miami listed in alphabetical order that put those after school Rugrat's themed pasta dinners to shame, no matter if they're gourmet and dressed up, simple and classic or in some cases, nontraditional and unusual.

Miami, FL 33175

Visit Website
To give mac and cheese better a Cuban twist, add carne asada, i.e. skirt steak. That's exactly what Finka did, as well as bacon, scallions, and three different cheeses.

4. Red the Steakhouse

119 Washington Ave
Miami Beach, FL 33139
(305) 534-3688

Everyone knows that even after a 22 oz. ribeye steak, there's still room for mac and cheese, especially if it's baked with truffles. Red's truffled mac doesn't pale in comparison to all its fine dining counterparts.

5. Esevagonte Eatery

6801 SW 8th St, STE 101
Miami, FL 33144
(305) 267-0104
Visit Website
Esevagonte's mac and cheese is homemade and tossed with chorizo, caramelized onions and bacon. Oh, and they serve it on a pizza.,

2911 Grand Ave Ste 400D
Miami, FL 33133
(305) 456-5723
Visit Website
The Spillover's locally-sourced seafood makes its way to almost every dish on the menu. Its mac and cheese is a homemade recipe tossed in Florida gulf shrimp, three cheeses, and scallions.

7. Doce Provisions

541 SW 12th Ave
Miami, FL 33130
(786) 452-0161
Visit Website
This is as Japanese as mac and cheese could get without being inside a sushi roll. The cheddar cheese is dashi'd, meaning it's been fortified in dashi, the stock in miso soup, and sprinkled with togarashi, a Japanese spice.

8. ROK:BRGR

Copy Link
5800 SW 73rd St
South Miami, FL 33143
(305) 663-6099
Visit Website
RokBrgr may be synonymous with free bottomless mimosa brunches, but its gruyere fontina mac and cheese is equally beloved. Choose between lobster, shrimp, short rib, and bacon for added protein.

9. Bocas House

Copy Link
10200 Northwest 25th Street Unit A 101. Doral, Florida.
Doral, FL 10200
Boca's is now known nation-wide for its milkshakes. For those who lack a sweet tooth the savory options are equally beautiful. Try the yellow pepper mac and cheese sprinkled with bacon powder — but make sure to take a picture first.

10. Barley, an American Brasserie

8945 SW 72nd Pl
Miami, FL 33156
(786) 623-6733

Barley loves mac and cheese so much that it has a rotating "Mac & Cheese" of the day on its menu. Depending on the evening, guests can indulge in version filled with truffles, sweet corn and marscapone, and carbonara.

Mac and cheese doesn't feel like such a decadent indulgence when some vegetables are thrown in the mix. Such is the case for The Brick's version of the dish, which includes heaping amount of cauliflower for a slightly healthy feel.
