Icon Grill's mac 'n' cheese is touted by many as one of the best in town. It seemed like an ideal way to begin our quest. I've had it a handful of times and have never been disappointed. Eventually, we'll have to make it to the Icon's sister retaurant, Zephyr Grill. We'll be able to see if the recipe differs at all as you venture down I5 to Kent Station.
What I like about Icon Grill's preparation is that they keep it simple. It's made with elbow macaroni and good cheese. It doesn't have shitake mushrooms or lobster added. And, while I can't wait to venture out and try these interesting varieties - Icon truly honors a traditional recipe. It's baked to perfection - giving it a nice crust. The tomato and basil, both served fresh on top, add just a little extra pizzaz to the dish.
An added bonus - I love to play with my food. The molten cheese served on the side gives this dish unique interactivity.
All in all, there's a reason this mac 'n' cheese is hailed as one of the best in town!
On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being creamy and 10 being cheesey - I give this a 7. But I don't like it too cheesey - so that's perfect for me!
